Please click here and download the repository RPM based on your distro and PostgreSQL version you want. The link will be opened in a new window / tab.
Installation procedure and details¶
*Some external help: *
In order to use PGDG repository properly, you may need to exclude postgresql packages from the repository of the distro. Here are the steps:
- As root, cd /etc/yum.repos.d
--integer-datetimes supported RPMS¶
These packages are distributed via a seperate channel, called pgdg83-id. Before using these sets, please make sure that you have latest repository RPM installed on your system. If you want to use these sets, enable pgdg83-id repository. You don't need to disable pgdg83 repository, since -id repository will always have a higher priority, and only postgresql with --integer-datetimes supported packages will be available in pgdg83-id channel.
NOTE: up2date, which is shipped with RHEL4 cannot be used with this repository. Newer repository creation evironments don't support up2date. RHEL 4 users need to use yum.
