It depends mostly on how much data you want ot store and how fast you want
to get at it. I've run postgres on old 486's with a few gig of disk space
and almost no ram. It wasn't fast but it was good for the hardware it was

There is very little in the way of "required" packages since compiling from
source will customise it to your whatever your system has available.

It's available for every version of linux, no idea about solaris but probably.
I don't think it requires particular versions of anything.

Perhaps you need to be more specific?
