Hey there,

I'm trying to get started with RoR with Postgresql.

I've been trying to find some information on it, but there's a lot of really OLD info on that subject!

What should I do to get my application working with Postgresql?

I get an error while trying to install the gem.

Which gem (there are several)? What error?

After reading i thought many info about alot of different gems.

Which one is the right one?

I believe I'm using the postgres gem, though I'll verify that when I'm not posting from my iPhone. :slight_smile: Others have reported success with postgres-pr (pure ruby) or pg.

Search the list archives for more, or perhaps there's information at Robby on Rails, since he uses Postgres.
