again (thanks!), I still can't launch pg8.1. Rolling back to 8.1 is
my goal in order to work around a driver issue in Qt.
Is there an example postgresql.conf file for pg 8.1 I can review?
Mine appears to be valid only for pg8.3.
Adding quotes to the shared_buffers value allows pg8.3 to start
successfully. Unfortunately, pg8.1 continues to have issues with it.
FATAL: syntax error in file "/Library/PostgreSQL8/data/
postgresql.conf" line 107, near token "kB"
FATAL: parameter "shared_buffers" requires an integer value
FATAL: unrecognized configuration parameter
