[geeklog-devel] postgresql and Geeklog 2.0.0b1

I tried the nightly tarball with root debugging enabled.

I had a few issues related to filesystem permissions (not postgres),
once those were fixed things got better.

I was able to log in with Admin and default password.  After clicking
around a bit, most of the functionality seems to be ok (the admin
panels are accessible).

However, the main index page fails with the following:

An error has occurred:

This is being displayed as "Root Debugging" is enabled in your Geeklog

If this is a production website you must disable this option once you
have resolved any issues you are investigating.

2 - pg_query(): Query failed: ERROR: column "gl_stories.date" must
appear in the GROUP BY clause or be used in an aggregate function @
/var/www/private/pgblog_private/system/databases/pgsql.class.php line

 array(3) {
  string(229) "SELECT sid FROM gl_stories, gl_topic_assignments ta
WHERE draft_flag = 0 AND date <= NOW()  AND ta.type = 'article' AND
ta.id = sid AND (ta.tid IN ('General','Geeklog')) AND perm_anon > 0
  array(0) {

In this case I didn't drop my database, so the install script did an
Upgrade, so I didn't get any issue about Superuser role.  However, it
seems that the install script is adding the PLPGSQL stored procedure
language to the database (to the schema?), which does require
superuser role.

I guess some people's databases are created with that language by
default, in my stock config it is not.
