Well, yes, and for using a nonstandard theme and not mentioning it
when you asked for help :)
To quote from our INSTALL file...
If you are trying to install Slash from someone else's package, maybe a
BSD package, or an RPM that someone built, or by a Debian apt-get
command -- good luck to you, we hope it goes well, we love packages,
they're great when they work. But if installation fails, complain to th=
package maintainers, not us. For those who download our tarball and
follow our instructions carefully, installation should go smoothly.

Just crawl through the sql/mysql/upgrades file slowly, read it and
execute its commands as you go... you should be fine.
