Starting the Server ?

I have just installed PostGres on to my Mandrake 9.2 system. I
installed using the RPMs on the MD install CDs.

I notice that when I start the PC the database server dosen't start
during boot even though there is a postgres file in '/etc/rc.d/init.d'
which I would have thought would have started the server automatically.

To start the server I type:

su postgres
postmaster -D /usr/local/pgsql/data

I have to be logged in as 'postgres' and not my normal user name to

What do I need to do to get things back on track and start during boot ?

TIP 9: the planner will ignore your desire to choose an index scan if your
joining column's datatypes do not match

Use chkconfig ir Mandrake GUI tools to autostart the postgresql servers.

man chkconfig for more details..
