Oracle support told me to install PostgreSQL driver in my Oracle
server. What I don't understand is what's the use of running pg_config
in a server where there's no Postgre installed.<br>
Maybe there's another postgresql driver that wouldn't expect pg_config
to be there. I there any?<br>

After looking for a suitable pkg for a long time, I've found
postgresql-devel-8.4.1-1PGDG.rhel4.x86_64.rpm which sounded like what I
needed! But when I tried to install it, it asked for some dependencies,
and those dependencies asked for other dependencies... and I almost got
all Postgres pkg installed by the end, and that's not what I want.
Isn't there a better way to get pg_config?

Thanks a lot for your help!

The thing to keep in mind is that pg_config is just a helper program. To quote 
the docs:

<a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" href=""></a>

"The pg_config utility prints configuration parameters of the currently 
installed version of PostgreSQL. It is intended, for example, to be used by 
software packages that want to interface to PostgreSQL to facilitate finding 
the required header files and libraries. "

In order for pg_config to work the other files/libraries need to be installed.
