because nobody has done the RPMs for gnome-db-0.2.95, only for GDA :-(

So I called the connection manager and selected the database that I wanted to connect to (after filling it in the manager section). Then I got an error message which told me "connectDBStart() -- connect() failed: Connection refused. Is the postmaster running (with -i) at ''and accepting connections on TCP/IP port 5432?". Error message -> 0

I didn't do any network corrections since I upgraded so I don't think it's a postmaster refuseing the request unless the new installation of postgresql dosn't start the postmaster correctly. As a matter of fact I noticed that during boot the postmaster is not started. I have to start it manually by /etc/rc.d/init.d/postgresql start on my RH7.1. But anyway, when I start it pgsql connects to my databases correctly and gives me no problems.
this seems something to do with the way you're specifying the parameters
in the GNOME-DB manager. What values are you using for connecting to
postgres from GNOME-DB?

it is the 'bt' command. You just have to run it when the program
crashes, and send us the output.

to build the different providers. But you just need the devel libraries,
not the database engine. If you are going to build the RPMs, you'll need
those -devel packages installed.

And heh, that mdk package is wrong. libxslt-devel shouldn't even be a
dependency, since it's not used anymore.

the same, those are small packages (at least in debian).

to compile from sources, you'll need the -devel packages of all
dependencies. As I say, those devel packages are usually very small
packages, so they shouldn't steal you much disk space.
