FWIW, this is inconsistent with what yum.postgresql.org does - it takes the POLA approach of packing the libpq from the major release configured in the repo. Each major has its own sub-repo. I find it pretty hard to justify installing a 9.3 libpq alongside a 9.1 server myself. -- Craig Ringer http://www.2ndQuadrant.com/ PostgreSQL Development, 24x7 Support, Training & Services -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
