It works fine. I used the --force option on the populateCategory.php
script call and the category pages are now showing the contents (pages)

Thanks for the update.

It still gave the segmentation fault error at the end, though:

/var/lib/mediawiki# php maintenance/populateCategory.php  --force
Category population complete.
Segmentation fault

Shall you need any more help testing Mediawiki on PostgreSQL, please let
me know. I will most gladly help you with it.
