Description kritek 2011-10-18 16:20:07 UTC
Postgresql port upgrade from 8.4.8_2 to 8.4.9 introduces changes to /usr/local/etc/rc.d/postgresql init script that cause database start to fail with error:

/usr/local/etc/rc.d/postgresql start
su: unknown login: %%PG_USER%%

This is the line from /usr/local/etc/rc.d/postgresql:



Set postgresql_user="pgsql" in /etc/rc.conf.
This was the definition as set in the init script prior to the port upgrade.
How-To-Repeat: Execute /usr/local/etc/rc.d/postgresql start

Hey Palle,

Great to see you've changed pgsql to use the USERS vars, thanks a lot.

This looks like the original problem I had when I changed the others
(hence my revert of the change before)-- although pkg-install.in no
longer uses the PG_USER var the rc script does.

Out of curiosity, why did you replace the ${} style with $() style? I
think that's what may have broken the replacements...
