I have installed PostGIS 1.5.2 on a PostgreSQL 9.0.4 (OpenSCG RPM) on an
RHEL5.5 system - the instructions in the included README.postgis indicate
that I should perform "make install" as "postgres" user. This didn't work
and generated the error below:
/bin/mkdir -p '/opt/postgres/9.0/share/postgresql/contrib/postgis-1.5'
/bin/mkdir: cannot create directory
make: *** [installdirs] Error 1
make: Leaving directory
make: *** [postgis-install] Error 2
I overcame this by performing "make install" as "root" user - I did this
because I noted that the online HTML documentation for v1.5 doesn't indicate
which user to install as - at least as far as I could see (ref
Is this a documentation error, or should I really be installing as user
