Note! These are the generic Linux download instructions. If you are using one of the major Linux distributions, you should read the distribution specific instructions:
PostgreSQL is available integrated with the package management on most Linux platforms. When available, this is the recommended way to install PostgreSQL, since it provides proper integration with the operating system, including automatic patching and other management functionality.
Should packages not be available for your distribution, or there are issues with your package manager, there are graphical installers available.
Finally, most Linux systems make it easy to build from source.
For information about how to perform this installation, please consult the documentation for your Linux distribution.
Installers are available for 32 and 64 bit Linux distributions and include PostgreSQL, pgAdmin and the StackBuilder utility for installation of additional packages. The PostgreSQL 8.4 installers have been tested with a number of Linux distributions and should work on Ubuntu 6.06 and above, Fedora 6 and above, CentOS/Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and above and others. The 9.0 and later installers have only been tested on more recent distributions.
Download the installer from EnterpriseDB for all supported versions.
Note: The installers do not integrate with platform-specific packaging systems.
