I had a similar problem before with an older version of PostgreSQL. The problem was that the rc script was waiting for input from the user. It was waiting for a password. Depending on how you set up your PostgreSQL, it might ask for a password on startup. It might help to post the versions of PostgreSQL and FreeBSD you are using. > -- > > ___ > oo // \\ || Gerard > (_,\/ \_/ \ || [EMAIL PROTECTED] > \ \_/_\_/> || > /_/ \_\ || "If today is the first day of the rest of > ___________ || your life, then what was yesterday?" > _______________________________________________ > email@example.com mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" Best Regards, Rick Apichairuk _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
