How did you install postgresql? If you did so in any of
the normal ways you have a service initialization script:
To see if you do (as root):
-> chkconfig --list postgresql
postgresql 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off
(You'll get an error if that script is missing!)
In your case, I imagine that run-levels 3, 4, and 5 will all
be "off". To turn them on:
-> chkconfig --level 345 postgresql on
Now postgresql will be started automatically on boot.
Incidently, running postmaster directly is not the best way
to start postgresql - use the "service" script instead:
First - *STOP* the current postgresql (however you do that).
Then to start it up manually:
-> service postgresql start
And to stop it manually:
-> service postgresql stop
to check whether it's running or not:
-> service postgresql status
