Forum OpenACS Q&A: ANN: Red Hat DB (aka PostgreSQL) Administrator for Debian
It adds some things that are not currently present in the rhdb-admin RPM, namely:
- A man page
- No dependency on Python (there shouldn't be one, fixed the wrapper script to remove kludge)
- Calls wish8.3 explicitely because it crashes if wish 8.4 is installed.
The package is apt-gettable (along with my OpenACS-ready AOLserver 3.3ad13) with the following lines in your /etc/apt/sources.list:
The second one is only necessary if you want to get the source packages.
I'll be uploading this to Debian in the next couple of days. I'll also be packaging Visual Explain (another RHDB tool). Meanwhile enjoy some screenshots:
I made a new version of the package, which fixed some tiny issues of Debian-policy compliance (lots and lots of rules). apt-get it at the same location.
I also made the RPMs for the Red Hat Database tools available. They are downloadable at http://www.brasileiro.net/bin/rhdb/
available as a Debian package, I just haven't had the time and motive
to try it out yet. :) But way to go, Roberto!
.rpm can also be extracted using cpio
just my $0.02 on this
