Actually I thought of recreating the files as you suggest, but thought it best to come in here and ask first, in case I waste even more time doing soething that dosen't work.. I'll try what you suggest and report back.

Thanks for your feedback, but are you by any chance guessing how to fix this?. I get the error: " dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of postgresql-8.4: postgresql-8.4 depends on postgresql-client-8.4; however: Package postgresql-client-8.4 is not configured yet." when I try what you suggested - i.e. sudo apt-get install --reinstall postgresql-client-8.4

I have always prefered PG for technical as well as business reasons. what first attracted me (about 10yrs ago) was that PG was more enterprise ready back then than MySQL. I also liked the PG License. Lastly, I have developed a lot of C extension libs that I use in my SQL queries on PG.
