Re: Debian Question Regarding Postgresql Replication

I'm not from Debian, but I'm just curious about your question...

Good idea.

Using PostgreSQL is independant from the Linux distribution, IMHO.
Why should these projects claim "we support this platform"?

The Debian distribution include packages for using PostgreSQL, as a server
(version 7.2.1 in Debian stable) as well as for PostgreSQL development and
many tools linked with the PostgreSQL libraries.

Anything that can run with PostgreSQL 7.2.1 should run within Debian.
It does not depend on the Linux distribution but on the PostgreSQL
version instead!
