I am searching the internets high and low, but can't find any Postgres 9.2 beta versions for any SLES versions. Can I take some Fedora RPM or similiar, or can someone tell me how to find the RPMs on the internets?

Thanks for any link or hint.

Is there any particular reason you want to run a beta release of Postgres? Assuming there is, is there a reason you want to do so but building it from source/rolling your own package isn't an acceptable option? Postgres betas see pretty active development - I wouldn't want to be waiting on a vendor update for one... – voretaq7 Jul 31 '12 at 20:04

This question has already been discussed at SuSE Forums, you have to add repository and install postgresql92-server:

zypper ar
zypper install postgresql92-server

Can I just use your Fedora RPMs on a Suse SLES system? – Franz Kafka Jul 31 '12 at 16:57
Using original Fedora binary RPM's is a bad idea - at least you will have problems with dependencies. Take src.rpm from… and recompile with new sources. You need some experience... Maybe there are some 9.2 files in suse buildservice. – GioMac Jul 31 '12 at 16:59
