Hi, i downloaded telegraphCQ, a datastreaming tool based on postgresql 7.3.2.


I managed to install it and some library it needs, and now i have to start postmaster and create a database.


Step 1: $ initdb --no-locale -D /home/kkrizan/tcq/pgdata
All goes well
Step 2: $ pg_ctl start -D /home/kkrizan/tcq/pgdata -l /home/kkrizan/tcq/log/pglog
All goes well. I can see postmaster process using ps -x.
Step 3: $ createdb kkdb
I get an error.
createdb: could not connect to database postgres: FATAL:  Database "postgres" does not exist in the system catalog.
Could you give me a few pointers how to solve this error problem?
Thanks in advance
