Trying to reinstall PostgreSQL on the MUD box. The RedHat distribution that the box uses is such a hassle to work with. The RPM tools just don't work and I tend to just pretend that previously installed packages aren't installed and just rebuild and install over the top. If it wasn't for all the things that the box does that I simply do not have time to recreate, I would switch to Debian or Slackware.
First priority is the new boards system for Imaginary Realities. Which is why I am installing PostgreSQL - currently Whelkboard uses pickled python save files and the first step is to convert it to use a database backend.
Quite a few popular open source software seems to suck. Take for example PostgreSQL - what a nightmare to set up from source, it compiled fine and installed badly - at least compared to other packages I have installed using my usual technique. Then there was no obvious documentation to show how to get things running. And to think I used to curse Microsoft for bad documentation.
