decibel@phonebook.1[18:44]/opt/local/var/db/dports/sources/rsync.rsync.opendarwin.org_dpupdate_dports/databases/postgresql8:39%sudo su postgres -c '/opt/local/bin/initdb -D /opt/local/var/db/pgsql8/defaultdb' The files belonging to this database system will be owned by user "postgres". This user must also own the server process.

The database cluster will be initialized with locale C.

initdb: directory "/opt/local/var/db/pgsql8/defaultdb" exists but is not empty If you want to create a new database system, either remove or empty the directory "/opt/local/var/db/pgsql8/defaultdb" or run initdb with an argument other than "/opt/local/var/db/pgsql8/defaultdb".
