I installed PostGreSQL 7.3 on Linux with uname -a as below:
Linux web1.jibenetworks.com 2.4.18-3 #1 Thu Apr 18 07:32:41 EDT 2002 i686 unknown
make check passed all tests.
I also have Python 2.2.2 installed:
Python 2.2.2 (#1, Nov 18 2002, 14:41:56)
[GCC 2.96 20000731 (Red Hat Linux 7.3 2.96-110)] on linux2
The pgdb.py, pg.py and the pgmodule.so have been correctly installed
into the python2.2 site-packages directory.
However, a basic query fails with the following error:
>>> cursor = db.cursor()
>>> cursor.execute('select * from provider;')
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.2/site-packages/pgdb.py", line 189, in execute
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.2/site-packages/pgdb.py", line 221, in executemany
desc = typ[1:2]+self.__cache.getdescr(typ)
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.2/site-packages/pgdb.py", line 149, in getdescr
_pg.error: ERROR: Attribute "typprtlen" not found
The postmaster logs show the following:
bash-2.05a$ /usr/local/pgsql/bin/postmaster -D /usr/local/pgsql/data
LOG: database system was shut down at 2002-12-03 16:30:33 PST

LOG: next transaction id: 1023; next oid: 19422
LOG: database system is ready

Is this a bug, or a misconfigured installation?
Pointers would be helpful.
