I need some help installing gnatsweb.  I am trying to do this on a
new Redhat 7 (Linux) system.  I have tried installing gnats via rpm
(the prefered method), cvs (as described on, and finally, building manually (using
configure, make, etc.).  It seems that gnats itself is working.  I can
use either send-pr or query-pr and all is well.

I can't get gnatsweb-2.7beta to work with any of these installations.
It can't be that hard.  Others use it, right?  The INSTALL file that
comes with gnatsweb says:

1) install gnatsd -- Done.

2) configure host access -- Done.

3) gnats/web servers on same hose -- Skip.

4) line 1 of -- Done.

5) make test USERNAME=anon PASSWORD=pw DATABASE=db_alias

What is the "db_alias"?  This is the first I have seen it mentioned.
Here is what I tried:

address@hidden make test USERNAME=wes PASSWORD=test DATABASE=gnats-adm
Content-type: text/html

<H1>Software error:</H1>
<PRE>Can't call method &quot;header&quot; on an undefined value at 
line 2117, &lt;SOCK&gt; line 1.
For help, please send mail to this site's webmaster, giving this error message 
and the time and date of the error.

value at line 2117, <SOCK> line 1.
make: *** [test] Error 255

Would someone please please please tell me what I am missing?  Others
must get this error too.  I have followed all of the instructions
as far as I can tell.  What do others do to get gnatsweb to work???

When I try to access from the web, it prompts me for
a username and password, but the database selection box is empty.
I have attached a very small gif showing what it looks like.
