Hm, the installation environment seems seriously broken then -- no /dev/null?

Murray, what does "pg_lsclusters" show for you? It will display the port and status of the cluster.

Also, what does

  sudo /usr/lib/postgresql/8.3/bin/pg_controldata /var/lib/postgresql/8.3/main

show? That'll reveal the encodings.

Mathias, are you sure about the missing locales? You should never set $LANG to a locale that does not exist. This is a serious bug that will wreak havoc in many different places, not even mentioning stderr output for every setlocale() call any program does.

So, is there anything to fix in postgresql-8.3 itself, or should this be reassigned to the installer?
