I'm trying to install PostgreSQL8 now using the instructions provided by the following link "http://www2.russbrooks.com:8080/2007/11/4/install-postgresql-on-mac-os-x-10-5-leopard/comments/130#comment-130", but when i'm trying to change user to postgres nothing happens, the user remains the same:


93-80-29-243:PostgreSQL8 olgaryzikova$ su - postgres
Password:
93-80-29-243:PostgreSQL8 olgaryzikova$



If i understand correctly i can only start PosgreSQL server under the postgres user - but i can't switch to this user and also do not see it in my System preferences --> Accounts...


May be somebody had similar problems? How do you think it is possible to solve it?
Thanks!
