Looks like a common problem.  

Several troubleshooting options for this popped up with a quick search.  Did you try just doing a Google search on the error message?  

That's often a great first troubleshooting step.

The issue seems to be related to security, but there seem to be a variety of different fixes.  These threads have a lot of narrative on the problem and possible resolutions - too much to reproduce here.  I suggest you review them, try the most common, and let us know what you've tried.  I combed through the top search responses and selected these, which seem to contain the most valuable troubleshooting information.  I hope you find it useful.

Try deleting that file as root or move it as root to something else:

#mv /var/lib/pgsql/.ICEauthority /var/tmp

The relogin as postgres

Thanks all.
Joseph,
does it mean it is of no meaning to login as user "postgres"?
