Re: New install, initial configuration failures

Hi Jim,

Welcome to the list.

No problem :-)Â Latest stable is called Wheezy.

Ok. Do you have the postgresql-contrib-9.1 package installedas well?

This bit means the the base files - notably Pg-database.sql - did not load succesfully. There are logs in /tmp/ledgersmb. Can you analyse those and send us either the whole file or just the few first errors?

I hope we can help you past this. Maybe even improve the installation experience in the process.
