PostgreSQL is available in all SuSE versions by default. However, SuSE Linux "snapshots" a specific version of PostgreSQL that is then supported throughout the lifetime of that SuSE version.
RPMs for SUSE Linux and openSUSE are available from the openSUSE Build Service in the project server:database:postgresql. Platform-specific RPM packages are available for PostgreSQL as well as a variety of related software. Use the search facility to find suitable packages. Documentation is also available there.
Generic RPM and DEB packages that provide a server-only distribution are avaliable for some 32 and 64-bit Linux distributions. These packages provide a single set of binaries and consistent packaging across different Linux distributions. They are designed for server installation where a GUI is not available and consistency across multiple distributions is a requirement.
Download the packages from BigSQL for all supported versions.
Note: The cross distribution packages do not fully integrate with the platform-specific packaging systems.
Download the installer certified by EnterpriseDB for all supported PostgreSQL versions.
This installer includes the PostgreSQL server, pgAdmin; a graphical tool for managing and developing your databases, and StackBuilder; a package manager that can be used to download and install additional PostgreSQL tools and drivers. Stackbuilder includes management, integration, migration, replication, geospatial, connectors and other tools.
This installer can run in graphical, command line, or silent install modes.
The installer is designed to be a straightforward, fast way to get up and running with PostgreSQL on Linux (Red Hat family Linux including CentOS/Fedora/Scientific/Oracle variants), Debian GNU/Linux and derivatives, Ubuntu Linux and derivatives, SuSE and OpenSuSE.
Advanced users can also download a tar.gz archive of the binaries, without the installer. This download is intended for users who wish to include PostgreSQL as part of another application installer.
Note: The installers do not integrate with platform-specific packaging systems.
