Hi Chris,

I reinstalled from CVS and was able to get further in the installation
process. This time, I could not get beyond the Setup/Config Login, at which
I received the following error:

Database error: Link-ID == false, connect failed
PostgreSQL Error: 0 ()

PostGreSQL is running and I did create the phpgroupware account. I confess
to being a newcomer to PostGreSQL. But are there some obvious
troubleshooting things I could?
