Can't start postgresql on a fresh 11.2 install

http://forums.opensuse.org – Hello all, I can't start postgresql and logs are empty. Here is the complete steps I did so far: I just installed Opensuse 11.2, got it up to date. Then I zypped in postgresql and postgresql-server. When I first did rcpostgresql start, after a while (a minute or so of waiting) I got a message "could not start server". Bummer. So, I logged in as user postgres (which was successfully created), and issued: initdb -D /var/lib/pgsql/data Looking at /var/lib/pgsql/initlog everything was created just fine. Then I did: /usr/bin/pg_ctl -D /var/lib/pgsql/data -l logfile start I got a message: server starting, but the server never got started. logfile was empty. rcpostgresql start as root still fails without explanation. Any ideas on what could be wrong or missing? Thanks, Dejan (Distributions)
