In building the 3.0-alpha3 version of the liveDVD, I'm getting the
following query come up (which requires acknowledgement). It comes up in
the install_postgres.sh script.
How do you suggest this should be handled? Should we be updating the
LiveDVD install script for Postgres to a later version?
Could I tempt you to update the LiveDVD install script?
(current version is r2716)
Issue 1: Should we upgrade to a later version of posgres?
Issue 2: Please ensure the user is not prompted for a response during
the build process and we wish this to be automated.
Please respond via the ticket at: http://trac.osgeo.org/osgeo/ticket/520
â"' Obsolete major version 8.3 â┼'
â"' The PostgreSQL version 8.3 is obsolete, but the server or client â-'

â"' Please be aware that the installation of postgresql-8.4 will â-'
