I have about 35 servers running Postgresql. On one of my older ones, which just 
serves up old data with no new data being added, 
and running on redhat 7.3 with postgresql 7.2.4, I am getting repeated episodes 
of the database shutdown while the system is still up. I find this very 

When I log in to the machine and I run pg_ctl start I get the message
input in flex scanner failed
and the Postgresql database system does not start up. :(.

I suppose, I should just do my work and reinstall linux - debian and the latest 
postgresql - but does anyone know what this error means before I blow the 
machine away?

Thanks for all your help,
Mitchell Laks
