I've just been setting up a LiveJournal Server on Mandrake 9, and following the instructions in the Manual came across the following problem. I ran the bin/upgrading/update-db.pl --runsql --populate command, to get told it failed due to no system user. I ran the system user script, which failed due to no priv for admin. I then ran the update-db.pl script again, then the system one and finally got it installed. Should this happen, or have I done something wrong, or explained this badly?
