Upgrading PostgreSQL on Debian Linux

"The PostgreSQL Global Development Group has released an update to all current versions of the PostgreSQL database system, including 9.2.1, 9.1.6, 9.0.10, 8.4.14 and 8.3.21. This update fixes critical issues for major versions 9.1 and 9.2, and users running those versions should apply it as soon as possible," according to this page.

I have just upgraded PostgreSQL.



For easy installation and uninstallation, I installed

checkinstall
This was an installation tracker.

For PostgreSQL to work, the following things should be installed:

flex
This was a fast lexical analyzer generator.

libreadline5-dev

This included GNU readline and history libraries, and development files.

I typed the commands:
tar xvjf postgresql-9.2.1.tar.bz2
cd postgresql-9.2.1
./configure
make
checkinstall
