versions where on each I can su from user Bob to all other user with
their passwords without a hitch.
The only user that stops me is Postgres?????
You are indicating I should not do what?Quote:> > Very inconvenient to log in as root then su postgres then back to User

Login as root then su to postgres or
Log back to user to use development tools?
I do not auto start any servers because....
I am doing comparative development and each
development machine all 5 have installed
I don't want all 4 RDBMS running only the
current working develpment session.
So, I manually start Database servers.

Comments :The OS/2 version (compiled by Team Italia) installed
automatically in 5 minutes, with folders on the desktop V.7.0.2
and has run perfectly.. As I run caldera 2.3 and 2.4 edesktops,
the Postgres binary RPM will only work with 2.3 Caldera
I even called GreatBridge and offered CASH money for help to
set up for Caldera edesktop. They said, BEYOND our SCOPE.
Did not give me confidence in their abilities.
I finally compiled my own from source 3 times with various
problems. i.e. I use jave so I sought out Apache ant.jar..
Not a straight road for my Linux Experience.
Which is why I am still evaluating 4 RDBMS.
Not to mention ;^)
I have tried setting my subcription in General-Postgres to NOMAIL
for 60 days with no sucess. My mailbox gets up to 500 emails a
Postgres has a lot going for it. I like the way it works ( in OS/2).
but I am first a Linux user.
Unless my tools work right, I can't get this project off the ground.
Once again thank you very much for your time.. Any further input
is much appreciated.
