Thanks Dave. I did locate, in the above,


re the following, which I broke by deleting the old postgres directory

        sudo SystemStarter start PostgreSQL

I now understand Mac OS X "SystemStarter" to be deprecated

so I can happily learn more about how the launch daemon is managed.

no, I left them as above. Contained therein include


which work.. the "start" script contains
        set ret to do shell script "su - postgres -c 
\"/Library/PostgreSQL/8.4/bin/pg_ctl start -w -D /Library/PostgreSQL/8.4/data\" 
> /tmp/pgmsg.txt 2>&1" with administrator privileges 

so I can likely run further than I believed, with enterprisedb :-) ...
