Hello all,

I am installing a new postgreSQL 7.2.2 in a fresh RedHat 7.3 installation.  I have
downloaded the source pgsql files.

I am having problems with readline library, I mean: I don't have tab, up and down
cursor keys functionality to get the history command into psql frontend... I have
spent a lot of time looking for a final solution on Internet and newsgroups but I have
no luck for the moment....

Below are my steps and its results (my apologies by this mail size).  Any help would
be appreciated:
