greetings,

i just successfully followed the instructions from
http://people.freebsd.org/~kevlo/postgres/portNT.html

make is ok
initdb is ok
running ipc-daemon and postmaster is ok

but when i want to start psql, createuser or createdb i get the following
error message:

psql: connectDBStart() -- connect() failed: No such file or directory
Is the postmaster running at 'localhost'
and accepting connections on Unix socket '5432'?

any ideas on whats going wrong here?

regards

helmut

    use "-h localhost" as a command line parameter for the tools (psql,
    createdb,...)
