Sorry, I don't get it. 

>From the postgresql-6.5.2/INSTALL file:
18. $ initdb...
19. Set up permissions to access the database...
20. Briefly test that the backend will start and
    run by running it from the command line.
    a. Start the postmaster daemon running in the
       background by typing
       $ cd
       $ nohup postmaster -i > pgserver.log 2>&1 &

And at this point it crashes. I'm not able to run the postmaster to create
a new db (or access an old one). I am not trying to run psql (which needs
the db name it should access).
