in my old age, I'm also flitting around with package fitting and configuration file tweaking ;)

the debian testing packages for pyPgSQL and postgresql 8.1 seem to work together over

here, if that is of any help .  Why Fedora Core instead of debian ? debian has an

alien package that seems able to convert Ingres rpm packages to deb packages, ( but

I haven't made sure it actually runs completely yet)

maybe fedora has  an anti-alien package ?

Gnumed is apparently using pypgsql package because of it's callback facility ;

e.g. the sql LISTEN/ NOTIFY commands , are available through pypgsql .

Is that the reason your application needs to use pypgsql , or what is the reason ?

OK, thanks Carlos and Sebastian - it seems that pyPgSQL can be made to
work with PG v8.0.x - I'll try again. I nearly went made trying to get
it to compile with PG v8.1.x

pyPgSQL is not supported for Fedora Core, either. In fcat, Fedora Core 5
now installs with a base module called "python-postgresql", but I
haven't investigated which Python-PG driver module this actually is. It
is not pyPgSQL, however. Unfortunately some of our NetEpi code has
dependencies on pyPgSQL - in places where the standard Python DB-API-2
was not quite enough. We'll have a serious look at validating and
packaging pyPgSQL (with our patches) on Debian and Fedora as an easier
course than swapping to some other module.
