– gforge-shell-postgresql asks wether or not to modify /etc/nsswitch.conf – answer yes

– postgresql-common: pg8.1 is deprecated … dunno just ok
– gforge-common has some unexpected operators in /etc/gforge/gforge.conf
– gforge-db-postgresql asks wether or not to modify /etc/postgresql/8.1/main//pg_hba.conf – answewr yes
– the database tables will be created for you
– gforge-web-apache asks wether or not to modify /etc/apache2/httpd.conf – answer yes
– gforge-mta-exim4 asks wether or not to modify /etc/exim4/exim4.conf.template for you – answer yes

the install will list errors for gforge-web-apache, gforge-plugin-scmsvn, gforge-lists-mailman, gforge
* “sudo newlist mailman”
