Hello,

I'm by no means a linux administration expert, but I can get around a little bit. I'm installing postgresql on RHEL6.1 (x86_64).
I did a yum install of the 9.0.2 postgresql-server and postgresql-devel packages. No problem, that's all working.

When I try to yum install postgresql-contrib, I get a dependency error:

[root(at)magftm2 pg_archivecleanup]# yum install postgresql-contrib
Loaded plugins: product-id, refresh-packagekit, rhnplugin, subscription-manager
Updating Red Hat repositories.

Error: Package: postgresql-contrib-9.0.0-1PGDG.el5.x86_64 (pgdg90)
           Requires: libpython2.4.so.1.0()(64bit)
You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest


[root(at)magftm2 pg_archivecleanup]# ls -l /usr/lib64/libpyth*
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root      19 Sep 14 03:04 /usr/lib64/libpython2.6.so -> libpython2.6.so.1.0
-r-xr-xr-x. 1 root root 1753952 Apr 11  2011 /usr/lib64/libpython2.6.so.1.0


So it appears I have python 2.6 installed, but postgresql-contrib wants python 2.4.  Can someone give me some pointers for resolving this?

I've scoured the 'net for a solution to this, to no avail. For the meantime, I have worked around the problem by manually building (with gcc) the pg_archivecleanup tool I need, but I'd prefer to have a general solution with yum.
