Are Postgres 7.4.1 RPMs available for SuSE 9.0 ?

P: n/a
Hi everybody,
currenty we use Suse Linux 9 and the rpms with 7.4.0 downloaded from
ftp://ftp.gmd.de/mirrors2/suse/ftp.s...ostgresql-7.4/ .

I don't know how to contact the person who build this rpms ,
and i cannot find other resources on the web, so does anyone
know a place to get Postgres 7.4.1 RPMs for SuSE 9.0 ?

Compiling them myself would be easy on test machines, but our
server adminstration must get RPMs .

Bye Andre

Try the following to see who built the original.
rpm -qi postgresql
From the URL you posted though, I'd guess you're looking for someone called
Max who works for SuSE

If all else fails, you might be able to take the source RPMs for RedHat and
adapt those.

The person is Reinhard Max. The SuSE RPMs are considerably different from the
RPMs that I produce; my RPMs are pretty well inoperable on SuSE. You would
need to get the SuSE 9.0 7.4 SOURCE RPM, edit its spec file for 7.4.1, and
rebuild it using the 7.4.1 tarball. Then you can install those binary RPMS.
I have no SuSE machines on which to build, so I am unable to do so. The
contact e-mail is in the source RPM's spec file.
