Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to ANN: dotLRN CVS Access Now Available

(another one who asks if this is the right place to report problems)

On a fresh cvs checkout of both openacs and dotlrn as described in the dotlrn installation instructions, in the apm I first installed all the packages of oacs that are listed in the instructions, and then I tried to load the dotlrn packages, which produced the following errors:

Installing data model for dotLRN 1.0...
Loading data model /web/gum/packages/dotlrn/sql/oracle/dotlrn-create.sql...

and a bunch of more error messages, all within loading the datamodel of the dotlrn package itself - the other dotlrn-* packages installed without errors. As a result after mounting dotlrn most pages return errors, e.g. creating a new department or club, viewing an existing term, viewing the classes overview ...

I know that I have not restarted the server between installing the oacs packages and the dotlrn packages, but that can't be the reason for these errors, can it?
