    Upgrading PostgreSQL 7.3.2 to 7.4.6 for Redhat 9.0


    Hi fellas,
    Newbie here. I have just installed Redhat 9.0 and I am wondering what is the best way to upgrade PostgreSQL 7.3.2 to 7.4.6? I did follow the instruction provided by PostgreSQL but I encounter difficulty in having the Postmaster to run. Meanwhile I am reading up the RPM How to and figuring if is there a rpm package for the PostgreSQL installation?
    The reason why I am asking for the best upgrading method simply because PostgreSQL 7.3.2 is packaged into Redhat 9.0 and most of the PostgreSQL related files are over a few directories. Whereas in the original PostgreSQL documentation, installation takes place basically under /usr/local/pgsql. Really confused

    Thanks.

    Any chance of upgrading to Fedora Core if you like RH, Since FC comes with yum which is a package manager you can use to upgrade your packages as easy as
    Code:
    yum update
    yum upgrade

    or you can use apt from my sig to update things very nicely

    don't know about the number. as far as I knew, yum and apt were very similar, so I don't know

    but I guess if you prefer yum then http://dag.wieers.com/packages/yum/
    and it will use the same repository
