    ./installpostgres seems to be installing an old version.

    Here is the output. Any suggestions would be great. (Already did ./fixheaders ./updatenow ./upcp) same result.


    This script will install Postgres 7.3.x or later
    If you have an older version installed you wil need to
    Dump your databases to a file and then restore them
    after the install as 7.3.x is not backwards compatible.
    If you do not have any databases, you can just run:
    mv /var/lib/pgsql /var/lib/pgsql.old
    /sbin/service postgresql stop
    /sbin/service postgresql start
    to force creating a 7.3.x style setup. Do not do this if
    you have databases that you wish to keep!

    Are you sure you wish to proceed? Yes

    Very weird. You might try rebuilding the rpm database.

    What version is your OS? You might just have to install from source rather than from rpm.

    The same thing happens to me, but luckily the RPMs off of a postgresql mirror work just fine.

    "RedHat 7.3"
