Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"Glom uses the PostgreSQL database as a backend, but can only edit databases created internally. In other words, all of those databases you created with PostgreSQL…Glom can not touch them. That is fine, because Glom is very good at creating and managing your databases. In this tutorial you will learn how to install and get started using Glom.


"If you point your browser to the Glom Download Page you will see fairly concise instructions on how to install Glom on your distribution. You might notice the warning that the default Ubuntu repository holds an out of date, buggy version of Glom. I installed Glom onto Ubuntu 9.10, using the Ubuntu Software Center (without having to add any extra repositories). The version that installed was 1.12.2. The latest source code available for Glom is 1.12. So this warning is most likely unnecessary for Karmic Koala users."
