Almost no problem at all... Instead of doing (for example, in the gdips.pl

  my $dbh = DBI->connect("DBI:mysql:gnudip2", $gnudip2user, $gnudip2pass);

you do:

  my $dbh = DBI->connect("DBI:Pg:gnudip2", $gnudip2user, $gnudip2pass);

to use a PostgreSQL database engine (requires the 'libdbd-pg-perl'
etc package though).

And ofcourse, the post*/pre* scripts have to deal with all the
different engines... I prefere mySQL, eventhough it's in non-free.
It's free for me...

    We are GNU.  You will be GPL'ed.  Resistance is futile.
