Do anyone know how to make the "Postgres Plus® Advanced Server v8.3
Rel. 2" run on PowerPC ??

There is a PostgreSQL server available in Debian, just an apt-get away. The "Plus Advanced Server" thing seems to be a proprietary product; this would mean that there is no source, and thus, that it is not possible to
run this on a PowerPC machine.

You could ask EnterpriseDB whether they'd be willing to provide it, but
I doubt they are.
I did so.. a couple of years back... but then they stated there was no future in PowerPC..... and now they have .... more-or-less ..... been bought by IBM... who makes Power chips.....

I just wanted to have a free database with the Oracle PL/SQL stuff.....
and Oracle XE is not available for powerPC either....

Anyhow... anyone with experience on running Oracle RDBMS on Debian (powerpc) ??

The biometric identification system at the gates of the CIA headquarters
works because there's a guard with a large gun making sure no one is
trying to fool the system.

kind regards
