database failure..

P: n/a

Hi,

I have a database, which just happens to be the main database on a
RAQ4..(cobalt)
that even when recreated it still dies, even before readding any
tables..

Welcome to psql, the PostgreSQL interactive terminal.

Type: \copyright for distribution terms
\h for help with SQL commands
\? for help on internal slash commands
\g or terminate with semicolon to execute query
\q to quit

cobalt=# \d
The connection to the server was lost. Attempting reset: Succeeded.

I can't dump either..

getTables(): SELECT failed. Explanation from backend: 'pqReadData() --
backend closed the channel unexpectedly.
This probably means the backend terminated abnormally
before or while processing the request.
'.

Any idea what might be causing this?

Regards

Jason Frisch

[root /tmp]# psql -V
psql (PostgreSQL) 7.0.2
contains readline, history, multibyte support
Portions Copyright (c) 1996-2000, PostgreSQL, Inc
Portions Copyright (c) 1996 Regents of the University of California
Read the file COPYRIGHT or use the command \copyright to see the

Nothing at all in the logs...How do I change the debugging/log level to
show more?

NB. a few of the DBs on the server dont have any problems at all...
