Hi All,

1st, let me apologize for being slack. I should do more research before 
asking in here. Anyway, I got it running, but, am new to pgsql and am 
getting this,

[racket at ibmlap lib]$ psql template1
psql: FATAL:  role "racket" does not exist

so I went into to the data dir and looked around and thought I could add 
to the below files.

pg_ident below,


# "local" is for Unix domain socket connections only
local   all         all                               ident sameuser
# IPv4 local connections:
host    all         all          ident sameuser
# IPv6 local connections:
host    all         all         ::1/128               ident sameuser

pg_hba.conf is below,

  racket      racket             postgres

I know I'm close with this. Cheers.

Mark Sargent.
