Gslapt installs PostgreSQL 8.4.2 fine and allows me to create (createdb) and access a database (psql mydb).
However when doing the tutorial from the PosgreSQL User Manual from the Vector 5.8 Development pop up (if that's the word) I can't get into the sql tutorial. The User Manual at Chapter 2 (the SQL language), 2.1 (Introduction) says that I should either find the directory .../src/tutorial in the Postgresql source distribution and run make or if Postgresql was pre-installed, to look for a directory named tutorial within the PostgreSQL documentation. I can't find either. I have the adminpack for 8.2.4 and pgadmin3 1.6.1 also installed.
Any suggestions? I am going to look on the PostgreSQL site and see if the answer is there and, if so, whether I can understand it. If so, I will post it here.
