    Default Fatal: bogus data in lock file "postmaster.pid": "" help please

    I recently bought a new acer laptop to dual boot backtrack 5 and win 7, this works without a problem on my small dell netbook, But when booting to usb, cd, or hard drive install I keep getting this error. The only way I was able to install at all was to boot from usb in safemode and run the installer there. Please help.

    Code:
    FATAL: bogus data in lock file "postmaster.pid": ""
    /opt/framework3/postgresql/scripts.ctl.sh : postgresql could not be started
    a bit further down i get this

    Code:
    BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000e
    the above BUG error has said different things but all somewhat similair

    unfortunately I must reply to my own post, problem persists.

    actually the only way to boot properly into backtrack 5 at all from cd/flash/or hdd install is to use the acpi=flag

    acpi=off however also disables my wifi and other devices/features that require power management...bactrack 5 is vmed for now but I really wish I could dual boot successfully.

    rm /opt/framework/postgresql/data/postmaster.pid

    I am using BT5 R1 and pot /postmaster.pid and /.s.PGSQL.7175.lock are DIRECTORIES. /postmaster.pid had nothing in it so I just rmdir 'ed it. However, the folder .s.PGSQL.7175.lock is a folder and contains many files and directories that seem like they may be important. I did not delete this folder.

    Should I delete the .s.PGSQL.7175.lock folder and all of its contents? This seems like it may not be the correct solution. Can one please explain this?

    Thank you.
