PostGIS for Linux : This project provides a PostgreSQL extension that adds support for geographic objects
PostGIS is an open source, easy to install, and freely distributed software project, an extension for the PostgreSQL object-relational database server. It has been created from the ground up to implement support for geographic objects in PostgreSQL.

There are now several open source tools which work with the PostGIS software. The uDig project is working on a full read and write desktop environment that can work with PostGIS directly.
