Postgresql Starting problem

Postgresql Starting problem

Postgresql Starting problem

(OP)
When I try to run my posgresql (version 7.3.9) I recieve the following error message:

PANIC:  The database cluster was initialized with LC_COLLATE 'en_US.iso885915',
        which is not recognized by setlocale().
        It looks like you need to initdb.
Aborted

Cann someone please tell me how this cann be repaired?
Actualy i have copied the data directory from previos postgresql instalation.

RE: Postgresql Starting problem

(OP)
By the way... I use postgresql on Linux Slackware 10.0

RE: Postgresql Starting problem

i would recomend to read
man locale-gen
if you do not have locales installed, install them

RE: Postgresql Starting problem

(OP)
I have readed it, and have this locale installed... I have allso set LANG and all the others to en_US.iso885915...

Any other sugestions...

I can't give good technical reasons, but I'm betting this is it. You should do a pg_dump then pg_restore instead of trying to copy data directories and files. There's logging (xferlog, clog I think) of transactions that won't stay intact with this method of moving data.

Again, it's just my guess.
