Looking for

October 13, 2010 2 comments

I had always been building Slony from source, but for the first time I tried using the community version from “”. I was using PostgreSQL version 8.3 so it was really easy to find the correct rpms at but as I tried installing Slony package I was hit with an error:

" not found"

This looked really weird to me as I already had the libpq library installed as but it was still looking for

Looking for a solution I started going through the 8.3 RPMs and tried looking for file file…. bingooo!!! I found one which had it. compat-postgresql-libs was the answer to this problem.

After installing that package, Slony got installed successfully without any problems.
