Fedora Core 1 Test Update: postgresql-7.3.4-10
Posted on: 11/21/2003 04:47 AM

Fedora Update Notification

Name : postgresql
Version : 7.3.4
Release : 10
Summary : PostgreSQL client programs and libraries.
Description :
PostgreSQL is an advanced Object-Relational database management system (DBMS) that supports almost all SQL constructs (including transactions, subselects and user-defined types and functions). The postgresql package includes the client programs and libraries that you'll need to access a PostgreSQL DBMS server. These PostgreSQL client programs are programs that directly manipulate the internal structure of PostgreSQL databases on a PostgreSQL server. These client programs can be located on the same machine with the PostgreSQL server, or may be on a remote machine which accesses a PostgreSQL server over a network connection. This package contains the docs in HTML for the whole package, as well as command-line utilities for managing PostgreSQL databases on a PostgreSQL server.

If you want to manipulate a PostgreSQL database on a remote PostgreSQL server, you need this package. You also need to install this package if you're installing the postgresql-server package.


Update Information:

This update replaces the current series of 'postgresql' packages in Fedora with an improved set of packages that was formerly called 'rh-postgresql'. rh-postgresql was a part of RHDB, and it is now being integrated into Fedora Core. rh-postgresql includes bug fixes and performance enhancements which are backported from the upstream development branch.

rh-postgresql also includes an improved version of PostgreSQL's JDBC driver, with functional enhancements and bug fixes that increases its level of compliancy to Sun's JDBC CTS test suite.

Note that no initdb will be necessary from previous PostgreSQL packages.
