Packet typeThe binaries are available as RPM packages and as DEB packages, as these are the most common ones under Linux. The source-code tarballs are still available, and they should be used for normal installation, because this packages support more architectures and the compiled code is optimized for the target system.

If you have any other processor (like Sparc, PowerPC, ...), you must use the source .tar.gz package.
