PostGIS 2.0.0, RPMs and so.

PostGIS team announced 2.0.0 this week. Kudos to entire team for the great work. It is definitely a milestone both for PostGIS and PostgreSQL.
So, as the packager, I released 2.0.0 RPMs just a day after the release. However, I needed to change package name, to let people be able to pick up 1.5.X or 2.0.X version to use.

The new package name is postgis2 -- but the actual name also contains PostgreSQL major version number:


It is available for PostgreSQL 9.1+ for now. I don't have plans to support 9.0 now, unless there is strong demand for that.

Hi Devrim,

Thanks for your work. Happy to be able to install PostGIS as an extension.


Devrim GÜNDÜZ on :


You are welcome. Yeah, extensions stuff is great.


Brian Panulla on :

Thanks for this! I heard about the release last week, but just got around to looking for the RPMs!

Devrim GÜNDÜZ on :

You are welcome :-)

Gonçalo Valadas on :

The rpms are only in the Centos6 repository. Is it possible to have them for Centos5 please ???

Sam on :

What about CentOS 5? Will you be making it available?

Devrim GÜNDÜZ on :

No. CentOS 5 does not provide enough package versions to build PostGIS 2.0.

Jeroen on :

Thanks for your efforts to create postgis2 rpm's.

Is it possible to create a version with json-c enabled too?


Devrim GÜNDÜZ on :

How is it done?

Jeroen on :

See, with --with-jsondir=DIR configure option.

The reason I'm asking is I need the ST_GeomFromGeoJSON postgis function (


Sam on :

Hi -

Has there been any updates for this.

It would be great to have json-c enabled.
