Hi all, I have just installed Postgresql.8-4.4 und try do complement it with
postgis 1.5

I have configured, done "make" and done "make install"
with postgis, and I got a "success message".

But now I try:

./psql -s -d template1 -f /usr/local/pgsql/share/contrib/postgis-1.5/postgis.sql

...and I get the following error:

ERROR:  could not load library "/usr/local/pgsql/lib/postgis-1.5.so

(but that file is definetely there!!)

In /etc/ld.so.conf.d/.... it`s written:


A misterious error comes if I do: ldconfig, then I get:

ldconfig: /usr/lib/libpq.so.5 is not a symbolic link

Maybe this might be the reason?
Can anybody give me a hint please?

Thank you very much, Kai
