RedHat install question.

P: n/a
I currently have postgresql-7.3.4-3.rh19 installed and need to compile with
options: --enable-multibyte and --enable-unicode. I also need to compile up
the JDBC drivers --with-java to create the postgresql.jar. Do I need to
un-install the current version and re-install from source? I am currently
running Red Hat Linux release 9.

Any help or comments will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Pete Earnshaw

Well, you can compile from source without interfering. With the right
../configure options you could overwrite your existing RPM, but that's messy.

Your best bet might be to get the source-rpm, and alter the settings in that.

These options do not exist in the 7.3 series. (They are the default
behavior.)
I also need to compile up
the JDBC drivers --with-java to create the postgresql.jar.


There should be an RPM available for the JDBC driver. Else, it might be
easier to download binary drivers from jdbc.postgresql.org.
