Up to SuSE 9.3, the Postgres versions shipped use version 3 of libpq.
Postgres 8.1.x use version 4.
Oddly enough, installing Postgres 8.1 works quite well with packages
requiring Postgres (e.g. snort, php) if you replace in /usr/lib all libpq
version 3 files with links to their version 4 counterparts.Nevertheless, if
you want something clean (Use the source Luke), you will have to rebuild all
these packages from source RPMs after having altered their spec files.
You may also want to go to the SuSE FTP server and see in the projects
directory. They release Postgres RPMs, but do not officially support them.
(see. ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/ftp/pub/linux/suse/projects/postgresql/, download
8.1.2 package and susbtitute in the SOURCES directory the 8.1.2 tarball with
the 8.1.3, amend the spec file in SPECS, for the remaining : man rpmbuild)
This does not concern SuSE 10.0+ users.
