Hi, gentoo rocks ! 

I tried to install PostgresQL on Gentoo
using the package dev-db/postgresql-7.0.3.tbz2 
without succsess. I get the following error
when I run initdb to initialize the postgres on
disk data structures:

bash-2.04# rm -rf /var/lib/pgsql/*
bash-2.04# su postgres
bash-2.04$ /usr/local/pgsql/bin/initdb -D /var/lib/pgsql
This database system will be initialized with username "postgres".
This user will own all the data files and must also own the server process.
