Hi, just to make sure...

I searched the lists archives as best I could with advanced searching
such as postgres + version, or postgresql + version, etc. and did not
seem to find any threads regarding PostgreSql version and LedgerSMB.

The issue is that the use of "ALSO" in the rules is only supported in
PostgreSql 8.0 and later. Don't know if this has been discussed but many
people still use the PG 7.4 branch and will remain there for years to
come unless they have some real compelling need to upgrade. I _think_
(not sure but could check) that stable Debian distros still use 7.4.
Please let me know, if you want me to hack this and make it work with
7.4 (and contrib this to the project[1]) or if I am missing something.

Also, I followed Chris Travers' advise on using the setup script, as I
have never used it in more than 4 years with SL! One thing I have never
understood is why after you download 4.2 MB of a tgz, does the setup
script want to download the latest version again?! There should be an
option to install the current version (where the script is running) but
only 2 options are available: download only and install from Internet.
Besides, I downloaded _the_ latest version, even more so, why is the
setup script wanting do download and install again?

[1] Perhaps I could create a script that changes these rules and other
things that may depend on PostgreSql 8, if possible of course.
