Your problem has todo with squeak 3.9. If you want to use the
sotware from squeakmap you can do this easily by using squeak 3.8.
If you want to use squeak 3.9 you should get used to monticello.
If you click on the background in the squeak window a menu appears
and you can find open... then open Monticello Browser.
You need to enter new repositories by clicking +Repository. The URL
are most interesting for you are
Open GlorpPreload and select the topmost entry and press load. Then
open Glorp and do the same. I uploaded a new version a few minutes
ago which should load into 3.9. Finally open GlorpPostload and load
the topmost entry you'll find there. Be sure you loaded the Post-
gresql client and Ansi compatibility packages from squeakmap before
Let me know if you were successful.
