14.3. Getting The Source

The PostgreSQL 7.4.30 sources can be obtained by anonymous FTP from ftp://ftp.postgresql.org/pub/source/v7.4.30/postgresql-7.4.30.tar.gz. Use a mirror if possible. After you have obtained the file, unpack it:

gunzip postgresql-7.4.30.tar.gz
tar xf postgresql-7.4.30.tar

This will create a directory postgresql-7.4.30 under the current directory with the PostgreSQL sources. Change into that directory for the rest of the installation procedure.

It is slightly easier and more efficient to use:

gnutar -xvzf postgresql-7.4.11.tar.gz

if you have gnutar installed on your system.
Another alternative is:

gunzip -c postgresql-7.4.11.tar.gz | tar -xvf -

Both of these methods avoid wasting the disk space
consumed by the raw tar file.
