 Dear Dicaire,

Thanks for your reply. I did what you advise but the result is the
same. Francisco
Leovey replied a bit earlier than you stating that "PgAdmin MUST be run
under a graphical environment. Do a startx to bring up the GDI" which I
will try at the office since I have a spare computer to play around there.

Thanks
