Hi,
I am a happy gentoo user and a happy postgresql user. But now I am sad to see that there is nothing done for version 8.2.x of postgres. Also I am a bit afraid that there is little activity on postgres packages in gentoo.
I will have to select a distribution to install a bunch of servers in the near future (please don't make me select ubuntu for this)... :?
Thanks in advance,
Bernard.

Have you had a look at bug 157337?

No, obviously, I did not, thanks for pointing me.

I am now happy to see that development is indeed going on and I'll wait patiently for those guys to release something I can try out.

Unless you're willing to install the beta of Feisty wotsit on a server, you're currently stuck with 8.1 in Ubuntu also :wink:

Just FYI, I installed the ebuild provided in bug mentioned above: bug 157337, and everything went fine. So I now have a postgresql-8.2.1 running on my gentoo box!

I was wondering which ebuilds did you use to emerge postgresql the ones provided by Michael Krelin or the one provided by Kamikaze???

That was very helpful, thank you
Now I'm going to test it

For completeness to this thread... I discovered yesterday layman and the additional overlays that it has. One of them is postgresql-experimental. It contains recent version of postgresql including 8.2.3.
I did:
Code:

layman -a postgresql-experimental
echo "source /usr/portage/local/layman/make.conf" >> /etc/make.conf
emerge -C libpq
emerge -C postgresql
USE="client server" ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge -av postgresql
emerge --config =postgresql-server-8.2.3

This version installs a slotted version of the package, eselect can be used the version of postgresql to make active:
Code:

eselect postgresql set 8.2


I hope this can help some people, like it did for me.

Ok, I did this but now I can not install libpq, which I need for pgadmin3. I get this error:
Code:
coruscant ~ # emerge -auv libpq

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild  N    ] dev-db/libpq-8.1.8  USE="nls pam readline ssl zlib -kerberos -pg-intdatetime -threads" 0 kB
[blocks B     ] <dev-db/libpq-99.99.99 (is blocking dev-db/postgresql-libs-8.2.3)

Total: 1 package (1 new, 1 block), Size of downloads: 0 kB

!!! Error: The above package list contains packages which cannot be installed
!!!        at the same time on the same system.

For more information about Blocked Packages, please refer to the following
section of the Gentoo Linux x86 Handbook (architecture is irrelevant):

http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-x86.xml?full=1#blocked


:(:(:(

EDIT: Ok, I made a symlink from /usr/lib/libpq.so.4 -> /usr/lib/libpq.so and pgadmin3 now starts fine.
