If so, where do I go next?
I'll try your suggestions then. One thing worth noting though, those early
failures are probably from before you sent me the idea to make sure that
psgsql was running. Remember the back and forth we had where I ended up
running the command to start it on boot and rebooted? My guess is that the
early failures are from before I did that. so what you saw at the bottom of
the file may be the actual breakage as you originally expected
(not simply a conflict with postgresql, which doesn't seem to be occurring
given that my output from your suggestions above matches your samples.)
