I want to install PostgreSQL 8.4 (or any service) on Ubuntu 10.4 (or any Linux distro) without it starting up as part of the installation. Right now when I do a
sudo apt-get install postgresql-8.4
part of the installation process is
Starting PostgreSQL 8.4 database server [ OK ]
I really don't want PostgreSQL to start just because I'm installing it because I want a chance to change some config files before starting it for the first time.
Any thoughts on how to do this or if it's possible at all?
