Linux downloads (other)

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:

  • Red Hat family Linux (including CentOS/Fedora/Scientific/Oracle variants)
  • Debian GNU/Linux and derivatives
  • Ubuntu Linux and derivatives
  • SuSE and OpenSuSE

Generic linux distributions

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.

Integrated installation

For information about how to perform this installation, please consult the documentation for your Linux distribution.

Graphical installer

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.

Build from source

The source code can be found in the main file browser. Instructions for building from source can be found in the documentation.
