Description Need Real Name 2000-11-01 09:23:31 UTC
Here is some e-mail about a problem compiling PoPy-1.4.1 on RedHat, with 
comments from Debian! I need a Python DBAPI v2.0+ for Postgresql urgently!
Can you help me?
Regards, Chris Marshall

Scavenging the mail folder uncovered Chris Marshall's letter:

appears as a redhat/postgresql packaging bug. if an rpm contains a link
to an inexistent file that's definitely a packaging problem.

Which postgresql RPM are you using?

Comment 2 Need Real Name 2000-11-02 07:42:35 UTC
The version is postgresql-7.0.2-2

Comment 3 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-11-02 17:05:43 UTC
That isn't part of Red Hat Linux 6.2.

Anyway, I and Lamar cooperated on RPMS for Red Hat Linux 7, and you can find the
result compiled for Red Hat Linux 6.2 on the postgresql ftp server. Note that
these are not supported by us.
