    This installation is being done on SUSE linux 10, please let me know if there is any alternative with which I can bypass these errors and make the installation successful.

    I have tried getting the above libraries but I was unable to get the same for Linux, if there is any place where I can get these libraries for SUSE linux please let me know about the same.

    Thanks in advance
    Regards

    Have you trying to search for those libraries in Yast Package Manager?
    Code:
    /sbin/yast2 --install
    Cheers!

    Have you tried simply installing Postgres by Yast. It should be there if you set your repositories up correctly. I see it at ftp.suse.com. Yast should manage any dependencies.
