Postgres 7.3.4 install

P: n/a
Hi,

Hope you can help.

I am about to install postgresql-7.3.4 on redhat7.3.

The installation doc instructs as follows:

using default configuration to build the server and utilities, as well as all client applications and interfaces that require a C compiler. All files will be installed under /usr/local/pgsql by default.

But I am getting no such file or directory. I checked the bin directory that I can not locate the configure script. Do I need to install the script first or is it a directory I have not worked out as yet.

As you will have gathered, I am new to postgres and Linux. you help will be most appreciated.

Regards,

Anthony

hi anthony,

First of all, can you please tell us what version you have downloaded... is
it the binary RPM version, the source rpm version ? the source tar.gz or
tar.bz2 ?

then if the sources were the right answer and that you have successfully
extracted them in a directory such as /my/directory, then you should be
able to go to this directory with cd /my/directory, and to configure
postgres with a ./configure

It's from memory because my 2 last installs were done with the rpm on a RH
7.3 (which works fine also...)

If you're installing from source -- it sounds like you're installing from
source -- have you gone through the configure, make, make install steps
without error(s)?
