This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Shouldn't you compile it from source, if yum is not an option? – Denis de Bernardy Jun 26 '13 at 15:33

Just rpm -Uvh postgresql91-*.rpm. It will install it in correct order and it will complain if it needs something.

But I can't imagine why you can't use yum.

i do like to see simple answers. we cannot use YUM as our target servers do not have internet access. – user423199 Jun 27 '13 at 3:50

You might want to add in postgresql91-devel.x86_64 as well. Also, is there a reason to choose 9.1 over 9.2?

There are some RPM steps on the postgresql wiki: RPM_Installation
