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.

It will need updating many dependencies

If more hands are there to help, we will be able to complete it faster :)
