because the postgresql-data is not installed, linuxconf
complains when you try to apply the changes (i.e., add
a new user). I get the following message when I view the
Starting postgresql service: /usr/bin/postmaster does not
database system. Expected to find it in the PGDATA
"/var/lib/pgsql", but unable to open file with pathname
No data directory -- can't proceed.
Those messages are only being reported via linuxconf, they do not
originate with linuxconf.
I believe this problem is fixed by starting postgresql differently in
postgresql-6.5.2 and later.
