Bug Description

When executing the ./ an error occurs saying:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./", line 50, in <module>
    fullName = pwd.getpwnam(userName)[4]
NameError: name 'userName' is not defined

This can be fixed by either declaring
fullName = 'postgres'
or moving
userName = getpass.getuser()
ahead of hostname = 'localhost'

Bug is confirmed, as well as the two proposed fixes by Hendrik. The second proposed solution (moving the userName = getpass.getuser()) higher in the file is of course the preferred solution. I am currently on a conference and will post a bugfix when I am back next week.

Thanks to Hendrik for his help,
