[Bug 1498274] Re: init.d script doesn't respect `version` argument


Hi jeroen,

Thanks for your reply.

Running `ps -elf |grep postg` shows both:

    0 S postgres 30213     1  1  80   0 - 331047 poll_s 14:49 ?       00:00:00 /usr/lib/postgresql/9.3/bin/postgres -D /var/lib/postgresql/9.3/main -c config_file=/etc/postgresql/9.3/main/postgresql.conf
    0 S postgres 30214     1  4  80   0 - 4088839 poll_s 14:49 ?      00:00:00 /usr/lib/postgresql/9.4/bin/postgres -D /var/lib/postgresql/9.4/main -c config_file=/etc/postgresql/9.4/main/postgresql.conf

(neither are shown after `service postgresql stop`)

I can also connect to both databases.

My notes tell me I did something along the lines of the following:

    deb http://apt.postgresql.org/pub/repos/apt/ wheezy-pgdg main
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install postgresql-9.4 postgresql-server-dev-9.4 postgresql-contrib-9.4
# ... later 
    sudo apt-get install postgresql-9.3 postgresql-server-dev-9.3 postgresql-contrib-9.3

(Note discrepency between viviid (my installation) and wheezy in the apt line — I didn't think that was significant?

  init.d script doesn't respect `version` argument

Status in postgresql-common package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Release: Ubuntu 15.04

  It seems that the current version of the /etc/init.d/postgresql script
  doesn't respect the `version` flag.  Help text states:

      Usage: /etc/init.d/postgresql {start|stop|restart|reload|force-
  reload|status} [version ..]

  But with 2 installations and called as follows:

      /etc/init.d/postgresql start 9.4


     service postgresql start 9.4

  Both 9.4 and 9.3 are started, I expected just 9.4 to start.
