in reply to DBD:PG

Usually tar.gz (Tarball source-code distributions) are quit easy to install.
gunzip distribution.tar.gz tar -xvf distribution.tar cd distribution perl Makefile.PL make make test su make install exit

Thats it!
I don't think RPMs are the way to go but you will find them e.g with a google search for DBD::Pg rpm.

    DBD::Pg would be rather difficult to install via RPM. The module actually requires the variables POSTGRES_INCLUDE and POSTGRES_LIB to be set (use 'export' for sh and 'setenv' for csh). You need to have the postgres libraries installed. Furthermore, each platform would require a separate rpm based on the hardware architecture. You might try looking on rpmfind.net for a PostgreSQL rpm, and then building DBD::Pg yourself.

    Yes, it's a little trouble, but I think you'll find that postgres is an awesome database and it's totally worth it.

[Corion]: Discipulus: Ah, so he's the one getting almost drowned all the time - waterpolo certainly is no sport for me ;)
[karlgoethebier]: Corion: buy enough coke and popcorn...
[marto]: Corion the cinema is a lot more expensive than I remember :P
Discipulus hates the smell of popcorn at cinemas..
[Corion]: marto: Yeah, most of the time, I prefer to watch stuff at home, where we can sit on the couch, order pizza and pause the movie. But for kids,...
[Corion]: ... I think the "cinema experience" is something of its own. But certainly, bringing an USB stick home is much easier ;-D
