A couple of questions.
Are you running either Tiger (OS-X 10.4) or Leopard (OS-X 10.5)?
Did you go through the process above and \&quot;fix\&quot; PostgeSQL at startup?
Are you able to get to the Service Manager? Does it show PostgreSQL as running?
Did you have PostgreSQL previously installled on your Mac by any chance? Or the OpenMFG demo?
One thing you might try (if you haven''t already) is to use the Uninstaller, and remove your PostBooks installation, and start over. -- Read more at http://www.xtuple.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=1385
