Hi all,

I'm trying to setup an amazon ec2 instance with postgis using yum, but 
it does not seem to have postgis in their repos.

[ec2-user at ip-10-0-0-159 ~]$ uname -a
Linux ip-10-0-0-159 3.10.42-52.145.amzn1.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Jun 10 
23:46:43 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
[ec2-user at ip-10-0-0-159 ~]$ cat /etc/motd

        __|  __|_  )
        _|  (     /   Amazon Linux AMI

I would like to avoid building it from source.

I have installed:

sudo yum install postgresql9.x86_64 postgresql9-contrib.x86_64 
postgresql9-devel.x86_64 postgresql9-libs.x86_64 postgresql9-server.x86_64

Anyone know if there is a repository that is compatible with this? and 
how to configure the server to use it?
