BUG: postgresql8 can not start at system startup via provided instrux

Reported by: peter.royal@… Owned by: mww@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.0

Description

the instructions given after installing postgresql with the 'server' variant say:

To activate the PostgreSQL8 server, add POSTGRESQL8=-YES- to your /opt/local/etc/rc.conf

however, that does not work. the StartupItem created in /Library/StartupItems/postgresql8 contains:

#!/bin/sh # # DarwinPorts generated StartupItem #

. /etc/rc.common

PGCTL=/opt/local/lib/pgsql8/bin/pg_ctl

StartService () [then continues with body of method etc]

.. it never sources /opt/local/etc/rc.conf and thus it does not work. manually adding ". /opt/local/etc/ rc.conf" to the file does allow postgresql8 to start wtih the system.
