I've just got gnumed up and running with Debian sid.

Thanks are due partially to the User Docs, and partially to Michael Bonert's HOWTO for Mandrake 9.1.

The user docs have a section specifically for Debain, but they involved using .tar.gz's for some of the components. I intentially set out to only use .debs from the main archive.

I installed the following packages:


and then frigged around for ages trying to bootstrap. I was confused wrt what to put for the passwords for postgres and gm-dbowner during the bootstrap. I'm still not sure, but after going through a few times, and doing 'DROP USER "gm-dbowner"' a few times, as well as some cvs updates, I got everything running. I ran the bootsrapping process as the user postgres (su ; su postgres), and used blank passwords for both postgres and gm-dbowner.

Oh yes, and I had to make the changes to /etc/postgresql/pg_hba.conf that were outlined in the Mandrake HOWTO.

Should I write up a HOWTO for Debian similar to the Michael's Mandrake one?

Oh, yes. A suggestion: Write up a README file and put it in the root of the Gnumed CVS. It should have the absolute basic information for people who are complete n00bs to the project. Stuff like:

- What GnuMed is for.
- Where the user docs are.
- Where the developer docs are.
- The urls of the project.
- Licensing info and location of the GPL.txt file in CVS.
- Stuff I've forgotten.

It took me ages just scrabbling around trying to find the most basic information, and I think this'd help.

I volunteer to write one up if people thing it's a good idea.
