Hi all,

Just to share the steps to get bucardo installed:

1. Install basic Ubuntu
2. Install following via apt-get install postgresql-9.1
postgresql-contrib-9.1 postgresql-plperl-9.1 libdbix-safe-perl
libdbd-pg-perl libdbi-perl

If my memory serves me right: I did "cpan boolean" (to manually install
boolean for perl)

Note: I'm planning to re-do the whole setup one more time to ensure the
packages installed are the required ones...

3. Download bucardo
4. Unpack and install

5. Edit /etc/postgresql/9.1/main/pg_hba.conf
local   bucardo         bucardo                                 md5

6. create "bucardo" user with superuser privileges
6.1 create "bucardo" database instance

psql template1

CREATE USER bucardo SUPERUSER password 'secret_password';
CREATE database bucardo owner bucardo;

7. Create .pgpass file

postgres at server:~$ cat .pgpass

8. Run "bucardo install"

Current connection settings:
1. Host:           localhost
2. Port:           5432
3. User:           bucardo
4. Database:       bucardo
5. PID directory:  /tmp/
Enter a number to change it, P to proceed, or Q to quit: P

Postgres version is: 9.1
