fairly obvious - somethings already running on that port. suggest that
the system is already starting the daemon... use the system scripts to stop
the process (eg /etc/init.d/freeradius2 stop   or such)   or killall radiusd

netatst -anp | grep 1812

will show the name of the process using port 1812

once nothing is on that port, you can use it with radiusd -X
