Package: postgresql-9.4
Version: 9.4~beta2-1
Severity: normal

Hi *,

I just crossgraded from i386 to x32 and can no longer access the DB:

tglase at tglase:~ $ sudo service postgresql start
Starting PostgreSQL 9.4 database server: mainThe PostgreSQL server failed to start. Please check the log output: 2014-08-08 21:10:36 GMT FATAL: incorrect checksum in control file ... failed!

I also cannot install the i386 version of the DB server, in order
to take a dump, because the packages lack appropriate Multi-Arch

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 postgresql-9.4:i386 : Depends: postgresql-client-9.4:i386 but it is not going to be installed
                       Depends: postgresql-common:i386 (>= 142~) but it is not installable

Would be cool if the latter could be fixed, or if there is a
cross-CPU dumping tool for databases. (I can understand that
the DB format is CPU-dependent, even if I don’t like it, but
it’s at least not in my $HOME like the KDE Wallet I which is
also lost to the changes.)
