GNUMed is under active development, so is a bit of a moving target when it 
comes to documentation.
./ is now (since 3 days ago) for running from installed versions, for 
when we have a stable release
(Real Soon Now)

You should run "" in the same directory when running from a CVS

Seems like you need to talk to the Fedora guys, this is unrelated to your above 
problem (but would still stop
you from running gnumed of course)

AFAIK Gnumed should work on 2.2 (although I use 2.3 myself, I keep the 2.2 docs
to make sure 2.3 feature don't slip into the code)

apt-get install postgresql python2.3-pygresql libwxgtk2.4-python

will meet all your dependencies, then edit /etc/postgres/pg_hba.conf and 
replace its contents with:

local    all   postgres                                        ident sameuser
local    all         all                                             md5
host    all         all   255.255.255  md5

then go to gnumed/gnumed/server/bootstrap
and run
you need to run it 4 times, options 5, 4, 3 and 6 in that order. [*]

then run as I said.

In doing this, be mindful that gnumed has very limited functionality at present 
(but increasing),
it's a lot of effort for little gain, unless you want to help develop gnumed 


[*] this really should be improved, I will try to write one config that does 
the lot, and reduce the 
number of options.
