Postgresql paths radically different from documentation
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:53 EDT
Why are the installation paths for postgres so radically different from
the documentation provided by the developers of sql?
As a user trying to experiment with this dbms, following the documentation
becomes a real hassle when i cant find the files or the paths and
parameters differ so much.
I've also had difficulty finding any notes in the rpms that explain or
describe how to work with the differences.

The documentation is in need of updating. Meanwhile, the paths are changed
to preserve compatibility on upgrade with previous versions of postgresql.
FWIW the postgresql is packaged almost exactly as distributed from the
PostgreSQL Global Development Group.
Please read /usr/doc/postgresql-6.5.2/README.rpm
