    As there is no such thing as "linux 10.0" I'll take a guess that you are
    running version 10.0 of the Suse distribution. If you compiled from
    source using the default configuration, try looking for the binaries in
    /usr/local/pgsql/bin/. This won't be in the path so you will have to do
    one of the following:

    1. Invoke the programs with the full path (/usr/local/pgsql/bin/...)

    2. Set your path to include /usr/local/pgsql/bin

    3. Create some symbolic links from the programs to some directory in the
    path, ie.
    cd /usr/local/pgsql/bin/
    for x in * ; do ln -s `pwd`/$x /usr/local/bin/$x ; done

    Cheers,
    Steve

    You can try using 'useradd'. On Fedora Core 4 both spellings of this command
    exist, but your distribution may only have one.
