Where do I find an Official pgInstaller distribution of PostgresSQL for Linux , and PGAdminIII?

Experts,

      Where would I find an official copy of Postgres 9 and PGAdmin III? I thought I had a good copy of PGAdmin III but got an error that the release that I had was not official. I do not want a release that has been repackaged. I had downloaded the rpms from postgres.org!

Thanks, Missymadi

Could someone explain to me why we would install Postgresql 8.1.23 and not the latest version? I was told by a coworker that postgresql is considered a downstream project and to use Postgresql 8.1.23 from RedHat to ensure the packages all work together on a Linux box?

And which version of PGAdmin would you use for a Postgres 8.1.23 version?

Thanks Missymadi

Postgres 9 works fine on RedHat Linux.  I use it for mutliple databases on my system, and I am running it on a RedHat 5 machine.  There would be no reason to use Postgres 8.1 over Postgres 9.

If you do decide to use Postgres 8.1.23 though, PGAdmin 3 will work fine for it
