> I'm trying to set up my first catalog on a linux box (ubuntu 9.10 &
Postgresql 8.4) using the latest release (5.6.2) and face few problems. I
run makecat as sudo. Have already a postgresql user as well as a DB created
in order to avoid the problems I get when the script tries to run
'createdb'. Everything goes smoothly trough and no errors show up but no
tables get created in the DB!

interchange_user I get a list of errors due to the missing tables:

At first glance it appears to me as if your user has not been set up
correctly to be able to fill the database for your shop 
 have you tried
with the credentials you put to get into the database and create tables etc
via the commandline?
