I added RHEL 8 - ppc64le support to PostgreSQL YUM repo for all the supported PostgreSQL versions as of today.

To use the repo and install PostgreSQL on this platform, please follow these steps:
Install the repo RPM first:

dnf -y install https://download.postgresql.org/pub/repos/yum/reporpms/EL-8-ppc64le/pgdg-redhat-repo-latest.noarch.rpm

Disable PostgreSQL module of the OS (so that we can install our packages)

dnf -qy module disable postgresql

Install PostgreSQL as usual (change 13 for the PostgreSQL version that you want to install):

dnf -y install postgresql13-server postgresql13-contrib

Initialize the cluster:

postgresql-13-setup initdb

Start the new instance:

blockquote>systemctl enable --now postgresql-13


Currently we have limited set of packages, but adding more everyday.

If you have any questions, please either email to pgsql-pkg-yum@postgresql.org, or create a ticket at our redmine.
