The experimental sources of debian already provides postgresql-8.3 beta4, so
installing it is as easy as adding experimental to your testing server
sources.list, or if you want to take no risk of upgrading other experimental
packages, adding the deb-src experimental source and backporting:
apt-get build-dep postgresql-common postgresql-client-common postgresql-8.3
apt-get source -b postgresql-common postgresql-client-common postgresql-8.3
dpkg -i ...
Install at least the -common packages, libpq and the wanted components.
Those -common packages contain the infamous debian wrappers which makes debian
differs from other PostgreSQL installations, but allows to easily use several
version at a time, including binary choice without messing with PATH manually
(adding --cluster 8.3/main to "official" options --- version/clustername).
Please note that 8.3b2 to 8.3b4 needs an initdb, and the debian packaging has
no support for beta to beta upgrading. You'll certainly want to do it
pg_dumpall > backup.file
apt-get remove postgresql-8.3
rm -rf $PGDATA/* (defaults to /var/lib/postgresql/8.3/main)
<install new version, either apt-get install or dpkg -i>
psql -f backup.file
Hope this helps,
