afaik, by default postgres listens to unix sockets only. You need to
tell it to listen to tcp/ip connections.

Check your postgresql.conf and the listen_addresses setting.
"If the list is empty, the server does not listen on any IP interface at
all, in which case only Unix-domain sockets can be used to connect to


All that blaablaa about not enough memory is just crap, imho. I used to
run my web+php+postgresql+mysql+mail+shell etc on much less powerfull
hardware than the N900 back in the day just fine.
There is much memory related that can be tuned for low-memory systems in
the postgres configuration. Check the documentation.
