I'm trying to install postgis.
Postgres, GEOS & Proj are all installed OK.
the command "createlang plpgsql test" works fine & the language is
installed in the db.
when I run "psql -d test -f postgis.sql", however I get errors.
The first few lines of output are:
PL/PgSQL is installed.
psql:postgis.sql:44: NOTICE: type "histogram2d" is not yet defined
DETAIL: Creating a shell type definition.
psql:postgis.sql:44: ERROR: could not access file
"$libdir/libpostgis.so.0.8": No such file or directory
The file libpostgis.so.0.8 is located in
What do I need to do to have the library picked up by postgres so I can
install postgis in the database using the supplied sql file?
I assume the $libdir environment variable needs to be set, but I can't
find a reference in the install docs. I have got it to install by using sed to
replace $libdir with the hard coded path, but figure this is not the ideal
