[postgis-users] Are there any Ubuntu PPAs that serve PostGIS 2.0 beta releases?

For compiling 2.0 for Ubuntu, I’d recommend doing a custom build of GDAL 1.9 with GEOS 3.3.2—otherwise you’ll have the package manager bringing in GEOS 3.2.x for GDAL 1.7, and then you’ll have two GEOS libraries floating out there… .  Might fix the problem below too.

It does look like a GDAL upgrade to 1.9 would be a good idea though if the final version will require it. I have plenty of experience building this stuff from maintaining most of the GIS stack for the Homebrew package manager on OS X. Entirely new to Debian packaging though, so that will slow me down quite a bit.




Actually, after re-reading the installation notes, it doesn't look like GDAL 1.9 is mandatory---just that GDAL >= 1.6 will be mandatory once PostGIS 2.0 is released.




Allright, took a few jabs at this and here is what I have found so far:


  - Without GEOS 3.3.2, PostGIS must be configured `--without-topology` so this definitely knocks out a big chunk of 2.0 functionality.


  - 2.0.0beta2 can compile against the dependencies supplied for PostGIS 1.5.x via `apt-get build-dep postgis` with the addition of GDAL 1.7.0 via `apt-get install libgdal1-dev`. However, 2.0.0beta3, released today, and the current SVN head fail during configure:



RASTER: Raster support requested

checking for GDAL >= 1.6.0... found

checking gdal.h presence... yes

checking for GDALAllRegister in -lgdal... no

configure: error: could not find gdal



This is odd, because running nm against the libraries shows that the symbol is there:


vagrant at vagrant-64:~/postgis-2.0.0beta3$ nm --dynamic /usr/lib/libgdal1.7.0.so | grep GDALAllRegister

000000000021a820 T GDALAllRegister



Don't know if this is a bug in the latest beta, or a problem with Ubuntu's GDAL 1.7.0 libraries. Any advice would be appreciated.
