Re: Need Help with PostGIS Raster
Milon,

Better to ask on the postgis news group. http://www.postgis.org/support/
Regarding status of WMS services rendering postgis raster, there are a couple, but they are very much in beta right now because major improvements needed to make them faster are happening with the GDAL driver.

I think GeoServer can also render PostGIS raster via the GeoTools PostGIS raster plugin. i haven't tried that so not sure how good it is.

http://docs.geotools.org/latest/userguide/library/coverage/pgraster.html

Mapserver can render too, but piggy backs on GDAL and as I said the GDAL driver currently is less than optimal for WMS calls, but hopefully will be 10 times better in 2.0.1

Hope that helps,
Regina
