I will try to upload the fix today. I have seen postgres errors related to system locale. If system locale does not support UTF-8, I think postgres installation fails. Can you try to purge postgres* and set system locale to one with UTF-8 support (like en_IN.UTF-8), you'll need to reboot for locale change to reflect. Then reinstall diaspora. > If you're doing a new upload anyway, and it's easy, perhaps you could > use the latest upstream version (6.2.0 I think it is)? It will need updating many dependencies https://git.fosscommunity.in/debian-ruby/TaskTracker/issues/119 https://git.fosscommunity.in/debian-ruby/TaskTracker/issues/120 If more hands are there to help, we will be able to complete it faster :) Btw it is 0.6.2.0. > Best wishes, > > Julian >
