Starting Postmaster

I am trying to use PostgreSQL 7.1 which came with the SuSe 7.3 distribution
that I have.

I am using documentation postgre.org.

postmaster -D /var/lib/pgsql/data should start the
postmaster.

I get several DEBUG messages with the last message stating " database system
is in production state".

The system does not complete the task. It stays on this last message. I have
interupt to get back to the postgres prompt.

Can anyone tell me what I am missing. Why is it doing this?

Try adding an & sign to the end to put the process in the background. I
believe it is running until you interrupt it.
