However, I get following error on Solaris:

--share_buffers=16000 /usr/postgres/8.2/bin/postgres: illegal option --
share_buffers=16000 Try "postgres --help" for more information.

but following command works fine:

/usr/postgres/8.2/bin/postgres -D /tmp/db -c shared_buffers=16000
share_buffers is not the same as shared_buffers.
Yeah, it was a typo but it does not work anyway.

Well, if it doesn't work you can use the -c option.

Yes, but it is confusing. For example see following message:

postgres does not know where to find the server configuration file.
You must specify the --config-file or -D invocation option or set the PGDATA environment variable.

config-file is there mention as a hint, but it does not work and I think there are more places where usage of "--.." is mentioned. It is confusing for the user and there is no clue.
