Installing postgres 9

I was trying to install postgres 9 on my Ubunto 11.04 machine, but the GUI installer simply hanged. A little bit of googling provided the workaround.

Follow the steps

1. sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
2. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pitti/postgresql
3. sudo apt-get update
4. sudo apt-get install postgresql-9.0 libpq-dev
