No core file because the server doesn't terminate despite the error message.

psql -h localhost template1 works! Was used to mysql where local connection
wasn't tcp socket unless explicitly specified. Still doesn't explain why I
can connect with pgAdminIII from the LAN but not successfully execute

It must be a socket problem; I found the following post in the postgresql
archives, but no attachment, just his PGP signature, and no new
src/template/sco in the source tree:

I asked my friends at SCO (who are productizing PG) to test
7.4RC1 on OpenServer 5.0.7, and received this back:

A "make check" fails at createdb with errors in the postmaster logfile:

LOG: setsockopt(TCP_NODELAY) failed: Protocol not available

Plus he needed to add:

if test "$GCC" != yes ; then
   CC="$CC -b elf"
to src/template/sco for 5.0.7.
I downloaded 7.4 RC1 and successfully compiled it on an OpenServer 5.0.7
I am attaching the only change i had to make. This is the file
The GCC compiler on OSR5 no longer accepts the "-b elf" argument.

Anyone of the guru's have ideas?
