Metasploit 3.0 doesn't pwn systems, black hats pwn systems

I'm not entirely sure that here is the perfect place for questions, but nevertheless let me try ;)

Without finding a clue after a tiring search, I'm stuck at connecting to the Database. Creating works fine with postgres and sqlite3, after the creation, msf tells me this:

*snip*
[*] Database creation complete (check for errors)
[-] Error while running command db_create: This plugin failed to load: Failed to connect to the database

Call stack:
/home/keeper/repositories/msf/trunk/plugins/db_postgres.rb:127:in `cmd_db_create'
./lib/rex/ui/text/dispatcher_shell.rb:234:in `send'
./lib/rex/ui/text/dispatcher_shell.rb:234:in `run_command'
./lib/rex/ui/text/dispatcher_shell.rb:196:in `run_single'
./lib/rex/ui/text/dispatcher_shell.rb:191:in `each'
./lib/rex/ui/text/dispatcher_shell.rb:191:in `run_single'
./lib/rex/ui/text/shell.rb:125:in `run'
./msfconsole:77

I've tried tracking this in the rubycode, so far without progress.
Also I've tried severals versions of msf (3.0 + 3.1 + svn)
got any clues for me ?

Thanks in Advance, Keeper
