RPMs for  PostgreSQL 7.0.2 are now available at

There is only one major change from the 7.0-3 RPMset (other than the uprev to
7.0.2, which involves the removal of the pre-built PostScript documentation),
and that is the removal of the pl/perl subpackage.  If you want pl/perl, the
lines to build it are still in the spec file, just commented out.  There have been reports
of difficulties building and/or running pl/perl on platforms other than x86.  I
still want to thank Karl DeBisschop for getting it to build on x86.

There are a number of minor changes; see the spec file's changelog for details.
Please read the README.rpm file, distributed in the main RPM in
/usr/doc/postgresql-7.0.2/README.rpm, as well as on the ftp site as

Soon we will also have LinuxPPC binary RPM's available, courtesy of Murray Todd
Williams.  If you have a platform that we don't have binary RPM's for, and you
want to contribute binary RPMs, please let me know.  The only condition is that
the absolute minimum spec file changes are to be made -- if the changes are more
than a little, I'll need your spec file and any patches you may have added.

If you are able to get the RPMset to build on an RPM-based OS other than RedHat
Linux, send me the patches necessary to do so, along with complete platform
information (OS, OS version, CPU Type, CPU model, GCC or other CC version, and
any patches made to the main PostgreSQL tarball necessary to build).  My goal
is to get a single _source_ RPM for all RPM-based OS's (more than just Linux
can run RPM....).  Thanks in advance for your help.

And, of course, if you find packaging problems, let me know, either through the
pgsql-ports(at)postgresql(dot)org mailing list or by e-mailing me directly at
