[OpenIndiana-discuss] PostgreSQL and ERP application

I've made a commitment to openindiana to provide builds of PostgreSQL for the community. While we haven't yet done such a build on OI, we've been building all versions for our own use on Solaris Sparc and openSolaris x86 up through PG v 9 RC 1. We build all with SSL support, so you will have not only pgcrypto, but the extra cipher suppor SSL brings to it. 

(We are heavy PostgreSQL users, including supporting clients using xTuple). We're working through the 'how to's for IPS package building; may need some support on that front ourselves.

Subject: [OpenIndiana-discuss] PostgreSQL and ERP application 


I am looking to build an open source Enterprise Resource Planning, 
Accounting and Customer Relationship Management Package, after a bit of 
googling found PostBooks ERP, Accounting and CRM by xTuple (see below 
for main Urls, including downloads). As I did not have PostgreSQL 
installed, I started the Package Manager and looked at downloading 
PostgreSQL (however it is marked as obsolete). 

Will a new version of PostgreSQL 9 be made available via the OpenIndiana 
IPS and can it include pgcrypto module which is required for PostBooks 
to avoid having two instances of PostgreSQL installed at the same time? 

Main Urls

http://sourceforge.net/projects/openrpt/ <- Report Writer

PostgreSQL databases (quick start, empty and demo versions)
