Installing Postgres on n900 Maemo

I decided to try installing postgres from scratch on my Nokia N900 and I was finally able to do so.

The steps involved are simple.
1. Download the source code for Postgres
2. Compile the source
3. Create the postgres user
4. Create the data directory and make postgres user the owner for that directory
5. Start the Postgres process from command line.
6. Finally connect to the Postgres process from another terminal window.

I will provide step by step directions to do this in the next post.
