Client (zope and psql) running on Linux 2.2.16 i686

> postgres version:
The person who installed postgres on the sparc machine isnt around
anymore, im still trying to figure this out. The postmaster or postres
executable do not have a "-v" or "-V" option that spits out the version.

The client side psql is 6.5.3

> are internet domain sockets enabled on postgres:
I usually startup postgres like this "postmaster &", and was told to
start it up with the -i switch. However postmaster doesnt seem to accept
that switch:
% postmaster -h
usage: postmaster [options..]
        -a authsys      do/do not permit use of an authentication system
        -B nbufs        set number of shared buffers
        -b backend      use a specific backend server executable
        -d [1|2|3]      set debugging level
        -D datadir      set data directory
        -m      start up multiplexing backends
        -n              don't reinitialize shared memory after abnormal exit
        -o option       pass 'option' to each backend servers
        -p port         specify port for postmaster to listen on
        -S              silent mode (disassociate from tty)
        -s              send SIGSTOP to all backend servers if one dies

yes, but this shouldnt matter, all im trying to do now is connect to a
postgres database using psql.
