Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: can not install Postgresql 7.2.3/4 on SUSE 8.2

Posted by bill kellerman on
Suse has a system management tool called yast2 that might help you out some.  You can add/remove rpm software, and should be able to reinstall postgresql.

Different linux distributions can install files in wierd places.  I don't remember suse's defaults, but one way to find out is issueing a command to look for postgresql's text-based management interface:

find /* -name psql

Someone with more linux knowledge than me might be able to tell you if you can install an rpm to a specific location?  As Dirk said, check the irc channel, they are helpful.
