DragonFly users List (threaded) for 2006-09
Today I got some time to actually work on some DF related things at home. I
wanted to install Gallery  so I could share some pics to family members (the
other reason was that my DF box ran Gallery back in the pre-1.2 days).
Happily, I found Gallery isn't in pkgsrc. The source install consists of a
bunch of php files, so I was fine with that.
During the installation process, Gallery asks for a database connection.
Thinking I had PostgreSQL  installed, I tried to run it against that. To my
surprise I discovered that this box only had the client, not the server,
installed. I completed a source install of /usr/pkgsrc/postgresql80-server and
tried to run it.
At this point, I discovered that pkgsrc does not install *any* PostgreSQL
startup files. I have a bunch of sample config files in /usr/pkg/share/
postgresql, but nothing that looks like a startup. I'm also assuming that the
config files are supposed to go in /usr/pkg/etc/postgresql.
My question is whether anyone out there has a PostgreSQL (8.0) HOWTO? I tried
the combinations "pkgsrc postgresql howto" and "netbsd postgresql howto" on
Google  but neither returned anything remotely useful. Heck, at this point
I'd appreciate just some general pointers/clarifications.
As many of you know, I'm quite content writing a HOWTO (and slaving through the
labor of what works and what doesn't) from scratch. I'm just trying to figure
out far "scratch" actually is.
