PostgreSQL YUM repo receives largest update set, ever.

Today, the PostgreSQL Global Development Group announced new minor releases for all supported version: 9.5.1, 9.4.6, 9.3.11, 9.2.15 and 9.1.20. As usual, RPMs are out, too: http://yum.PostgreSQL.org

Since the last set of updates, I have been working hard with other members in the community for shuffling the repo a bit, towards an aim for better and easier maintenance.

Below is the list of today's update set. They all include the latest versions of each software as of today:

postgresql-tcl
postgresql-jdbc
pgpool
pgpoolAdmin
pg_bulkload
pgmemcache
pg_comparator
check_postgres
multicorn
pgactivity
ora2pg
pgbouncer
pg_jobmon
pam-pgsql
pgsi
pguri
plpgsql_check
psycopg2
ogr_fdw
pg_fkpart
pgcenter
pgbadger
pg_track_settings
tds_fdw
repmgr
powa

Please let us know if you encounter any issues with the packaging.

Thanks!

Joe Healy on :

Just trying to follow the installation instructions from /usr/share/doc/postgresql95-9.5.1/README.rpm-dist:

QUICKSTART (note that this requires postgresql95-server installed)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
For a fresh installation, you will need to initialize the cluster first. Run:

/usr/pgsql-9.5/bin/postgresql95-setup initdb

as root, and it will prepare a new database cluster for you. Then you will
need to start PostgreSQL. Again as root, run:
...

And the file /usr/pgsql-9.5/bin/postgresql95-setup appears to be missing.

I've installed the following package:

postgresql95-server.x86_64 9.5.1-1PGDG.rhel6 @pgdg95

Is this a documentation bug or is there a packaging problem?

Joe Healy on :

Looks like this is a documentation bug.

I ended up running initdb via

service postgresql-9.5 initdb

Thanks for the packaging work,

Joe

Hi Joe,

For RHEL 5 and 6, service command is used for initdb. For RHEL 7, and all Fedora releases, postgresql95-setup command is used.

Sorry for the confusion, let me try to fix it.

Regards, Devrim

Something went wrong after upgrading from 9.5.0 to 9.5.1 in CentOS 6, there is a warning about a missing fi in a shell script.

Devrim Gündüz on :

Hi Daniel,

Yeah, actually we fixed it in 9.5.1, but the problem will go away in 9.5.1->9.5.2 update.

Sorry about that.
