installing postgresql on RH9 issues


Hi, I would like to install postgresql on my RH9 box without upgrading to another Linux distro.
The install runs fine until the install script tries to initialise the database cluster:
Quote:
Error running /opt/postgresql/8.3/installer/server/initcluster.sh "postgres" "xxxxx_" "/opt/postgresql/8.3" "/opt/postgresql/8.3/data" 5432 DEFAULT : /opt/postgresql/8.3/bin/initdb: relocation error: /opt/postgresql/8.3/bin/initdb: symbol sys_siglist, version GLIBC_2.3.3 not defined in file libc.so.6 with link time reference
My understanding is that the above issue is due to the initdb binary being compiled with a library other than glibc_2.3.3. Is this correct? If so can I update the library links and put in an updated library with the correct links, or will I have to compile postgre on my system?

Thanks

redhat 9 is end of life and has been for a few years. You are stuck with old versions of everything.
What is your rationale for using what is not technically viable in this day and age?

The only postgres install you will get to work was the one that was shipped at the time of RH9

Thierry, yes I know it is end of life and I should upgrade. The box runs very well and I would like to do the install as an "intellectual" exercise. I know this may be wankery, but...

Anyway I am running gmake as I type this having just run ./configure, I had to find readline-devel-4.3-5 and zlib-devel-1.1.4-8 but the ./configure script ran without any issues.

op... gmake just finished: "All of PostgreSQL successfully made. Ready to install."

On with the next step.
