Hello Geordie,

thanks for trying again.

That should work, too. However, leaving it empty is
functionally the same thing.

There is one difference, though:

If "host" is not given (host =) the connection is made over
UNIX domain sockets and whatever auth scheme is set for that
in pg_hba.conf applies.

(the lines starting with "local ...")

If "host" is "localhost" it may or may not assume IP address (depending on distribution) and the connection is
made via local loopback TCP/IP and whatever auth scheme is
set for *that* in pg_hba.conf applies.

(the lines starting with "host ...")

Surely. You typed the password wrong.

However, on the second attempt you probably typed it
properly (at least the log timestamps say that the *second*
attempt did not complain about the wrong password). It then
goes on to complain about a faulty or missing pg_hba.conf.
Since we shall assume you do have PostgreSQL installed (in
any case it did not complain about that the first time
around) there must be something in your pg_hba.conf which is
not quite right.

You might want to post that file (off-list if you so wish)
so we can give advice.

Up until here there is no indication of any fault with
GNUmed code. It simply reports problems with the environment
it is told to run in.

Nice to see people testing in diverse environments !
