Hi Geordi,

now we are getting closer. There's some information in your
mail that we can work with. Good.

Excellent, you are up to date here. This is Sidux as I
recall ?

The PG project seems to have renamed the PostgreSQL process
name to "postgres" in 8.3. Please retry grepping for "post"
rather than "postmaster".

Well, how far did it get ? Did it re-init a new cluster ?

This is actually deeply down in the guts of Linux. Sidux
being a Debian variant I doubt you need to be doing any such

These days on PG 8.3 tcpip_socket has been renamed to

You will only need to change this if you plan to connect
from other machines.

You might just make a copy with "cp" into your homedir ?
You'll have to be postgres for that to work I'd assume.

Sidux should have a script to start PostgreSQL on system
restart. Look for that. The above is only recommended if you
know what you do.

Exactly what were the steps you did when you bootstrapped
the database ?

Under which user did you run the net_install* script ?

Certainly not.

You will have to tell us exactly what you did.

This looks OK to me.

> What other information would you like?

Exactly how did you install the GNUmed client ?

Can you connect to the public database ?

Exactly how did you install the GNUmed database ?

What does the following say:

su - root
su - postgres
psql -l
