;-(   Anyway, Andreas' suggestion to use Debian/Testing is
very sound. I am using it for years, too, w/o any problems.

You'd have to be in /root/.gnumed/ because that's where the
file is (if so, I doubt it).

You need "/etc/...", not "etc/...", note the / at the beginning.

Looks good (oh, maybe remove the leading spaces) but it also
needs this:


profiles = $profiles$
public GNUmed database
local GNUmed database

so it knows which of the defined profiles are actually
active. Please retry and send me the log after trying to log
into your public database
