Following some links one can find out http://packages.debian.org/source/unstable/postgresql-9.0 http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/main/p/postgresql-9.0/postgresql-9.0_9.0.1-1.debian.tar.gz And check that debian package is patching src/include/pg_config_manual.h and not using the other facility proposed in the comments: * here's where to twiddle it. You can also override this at runtime * with the postmaster's -k switch. -#define DEFAULT_PGSOCKET_DIR "/tmp" +#define DEFAULT_PGSOCKET_DIR "/var/run/postgresql" But still, I wonder how this -k switch will get a role here, pg_control certainly won't know about that. I guess it's worse to give a wrong value rather than none, but that's easy to fix by having a good label for the line, I guess. All in all it would be good to have that in pg_control. -- Dimitri Fontaine http://2ndQuadrant.fr PostgreSQL : Expertise, Formation et Support -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
