PostgreSQL 8.1 and Kubuntu 6.10

December 10, 2006 § 2 Comments

Just a quick note on my experience with PostgreSQL 8.1 with Kubuntu 6.10:

Installing the updates displayed by Adept updater before installing PostgreSQL 8.1 resulted in a broken install of the program.

However, installing PostgreSQL 8.1 on a fresh install of Kubuntu 6.10 using either apt-get or adept  and then installing the updates works fine.

Of course, this might be a specific case, and YMMV.

    I am a little confused here. I am having a terrible time getting PG 8.1 up and running on Kubuntu 6.10 – there seems to be some initial config stuff missing.

    What exactly do you mean by “installing the database” before doing the adept update? I’d really like to solve this problem. Otherwise I may end up going back to Fedora on this machine.

    Please explain your procedures in more depth.

    What I mean is: installing PostgreSQL 8.1 *before* installing any updates whatsoever works. So this requires a *fresh* Kubuntu 6.10 install.

    Edited the post to clarify this better.

    Hope this helps.
