Re: Sample Database for Drumbeat.org

NNTP-Posting-Host:  63.245.208.166

Hi paul,

I was attempting to install on osx 10.6. There were a number of issues that
I could never resolve.

One of the major ones was that I was never able to get certain parts of the
admin to display. I have no idea why not. But for example, I was not able to
turn off the javascript concatenation - so I was not able to work on
javascript locally.

Actually, at this point, due to subsequent svn updates (I am assuming) my
local site is broken. This actually may be due to my db getting out of
synch.

I am fine with just working via cssEdit for now. Perhaps if there is a
disk-image based process down the line I may pick up again.

Ned
