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...

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

zypper ar http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/server:/database:/postgresql/SLE_11_SP2/server:database:postgresql.repo
zypper install postgresql92-server






  • Can I just use your Fedora RPMs on a Suse SLES system? Jul 31, 2012 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 build.opensuse.org/search/… and recompile with new sources. You need some experience... Maybe there are some 9.2 files in suse buildservice.
