Hi all!

Thanks for making catalyst! It is just what I had been looking for 
having picked up on ruby on rails, taking  a glimpse at Maypole with my 
preference for perl and being less than excited about being stuck with 
Mason templating.

I am just getting started to learn and have installed catalyst this 
afternoon. Now I have run into a little hurdle in getting it to run with 

I have been working through the docs, created my skeleton application 
via catalyst.pl. As I want to experiment with an existing Postgres setup 
I went on to generate the CDBI.pm and Page.pm via the MyApp_create.pl 
helper script but with postgres centric parameters.

The helper runs but fails to finish building all parts and gives me some 
errors/warnings and now I can not identify why Pg.pm is tripping over. I 
might just eat my post if I missed something blatantly obvious in 
configuring postgres stuff..

Here is what I get:

    ./btest_create.pl model CDBI CDBI 'DBI:Pg:dbname=test_db; 
host=myhost' myuser mypass
    created "/usr/local/btest/script/../lib/btest/M/CDBI.pm"
    Use of uninitialized value in split at 
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.3/Class/DBI/Pg.pm line     81, <DATA> 
line 1.
    basmembers has no primary key at            
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.3/Class/DBI/Loader/Generic.pm line 196

Any pointers will be much appreciated!!

Many Thanks in advance,
