Finding your OS/Architecture

If you do not know which OS/Architecture you are using, please run the following:

Step 1: Find distribution


cat /etc/redhat-release

This command will give you output like:

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux release 8.1 (Ootpa)
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.7 (Maipo)
  • CentOS Linux release 7.7.1908 (Core)
  • CentOS release 6.10 (Final)
  • Fedora release 31 (Thirty One)

or similar. The results would show you are using RHEL 8.1, 7.7, CentOS 7.7, CentOS 6.10 or Fedora 31, respectively.

Step 2: Find architecture


uname -m

This command will give you an output like x86_64, ppc4le or i686.

So, if the first output is Fedora 32 and the second one is x86_64, go to Packages page, and find the repository RPMs in the PostgreSQL version that you are looking for.
