I run an older version of psql (7.2.4) on a Linux machine.

I wish to migrate psql to an Intel Mac running OS x 10.4.8.

The supported platforms table in postgresql-8.1-US.pdf (page 259)
lists Mac OS X with a PPC cpu as being supported, but not Mac OS X
with a Intel cpu.

Can psql run on an Intel Mac?

Have I addressed my question to the correct list?

    Yes, absolutely. It is just that 8.1 came out before the Intel Macs. It
    will perform wonderfully on a Intel Mac.

    It's running fine on this one. No problems building from
    source.

    There are several people providing prebuilt universal
    binary packages for OS X.

    http://www.entropy.ch/software/macosx/postgresql/
    is one.

    Cheers,
    Steve
