I did get it working. Here is the line that I used in rc.conf: postgresql_flags="-o '-i' -w -s -m fast" As a point of information, what was confusing me was, i had increased the number of connections in postgresql.conf. This had created a situation where I did not have enough kernel resources. This was loged in /var/log/messages. I crected this, but even then postgess would never start again, and no further messages werre put in /var/log/messages. I would up re init'g the database. -- One of the main causes of the fall of the roman empire was that, lacking zero, they had no way to indicate successful termination of their C programs. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
