Hey Dan,

I ran into the same problem when I was building on ubuntu.  You're missing jade and once it's installed (as well as the templates - very important.  Here's what I found I had to install (via apt):

  *   jade
  *   sgml-data
  *   docbook-dssl

That should get you over the compilation issues.

Hi all,

Postgres-XL looks great! I'd like to profile it on a data problem I have and generally play with it.

Are there any plans to build debian-compatible packages alongside the RPMs? Hosting an apt repo would be ideal. Inability to cleanly install adds a pretty big hurdle to trying out Postgres-XL for people on ubuntu.

My company runs everything on ubuntu. Compiling from source on ubuntu results in errors when it tries to build documentation in the "make" step, and then the "make install" step won't run at all. (This is with clean output from ./configure, so I'm not sure what's going on.) Installing from RPMs on ubuntu requires some hacking via alien, and I'm still not sure the linking is working correctly.

Thanks in any case. Looking forward to trying it out!
