I want to install baseboards in a room that is a garage conversion.
Since the bottom of the wall is cement blocks I cannot nail them in
place. The bottom of the drywall is glued to the blocks. It was
never framed to the floor. What would be the best adhesive to use for
this or is there another way to do this?

I've added furring strips to the upper framing and extended them down
over the block to keep the drywall away from the block.
re: That's why they make cement nails. You can also drill, put plastic
inserts and screws. It's not difficult.
To install baseboard? Seem like overkill and a lot of labor for
something a little Liquid Nails can handle in a matter of minutes.
Well, it isn't ONLY glue, but they do glue houses together now, and have
for a decade or two. Glue-lam beams, and structural members and panels
made from what used to be considered trash wood, formed into sheets and
framing. And when they assemble it, they glue it together, along with
the nails. (Not sure how well nails stick in wood made out of glued and
compressed chips- I suspect the adhesive does most of the holding work
once it cures.)
