NetBSD Episode #2: Continuing On

Now I’ve continued, and done the following.

  • Used pkg_add to install ruby19-rails, wget, links, vsftpd, django, south, and postgresql
  • Copied /usr/pkg/share/examples/rc.d/vsftpd to /etc/rc.d/vsftpd
  • Copied /usr/pkg/share/examples/rc.d/pgsql to /etc/rc.d/pgsql
  • Added vsftpd=YES and pgsql=YES to /etc/rc.conf
  • Then I went to initialize the postgres with initdb, ie:
    • useradd -m postgres
    • passwd postgres
    • mkdir /usr/local/pgsql /usr/local/pgsql/var
    • chown -R postgres:users /usr/local/pgsql
    • su postgres
    • initdb -D /usr/local/pgsql/var

At this point, running initdb failed complaining it can’t create a “shared memory segment”. “This error usually means that PostgreSQL’s request for a shared memory segment exceeds available memory or swap space.

I ran out of time this morning and have not had an opportunity to address this yet.
