Description Luca Corti 2015-04-20 18:09:33 UTC

postgis is missing the control files apparently:

=> create extension postgis;
ERROR:  could not open extension control file "/usr/local/share/postgresql/extension/postgis.control": No such file or directory

This makes it kind of hard to use.

To which of the postgis ports does this PR apply?
Comment 2 Luca Corti 2015-04-23 10:19:04 UTC
databases/postgis21, the issue is the default is building without raster support, but raster support is needed to generate the extension control files and SQL.

Fix Summary and notify maintainer.
Comment 4 Harrison Grundy 2015-05-01 06:02:44 UTC
I'm discussing this with upstream now. For the moment, the quickest workaround is to enable RASTER support.

Comment 6 Chris Platts 2015-10-09 23:55:22 UTC
This one's biting me too.  Would be great to have the binary dist. working out of the box.
Comment 7 Harrison Grundy 2015-10-16 11:00:12 UTC
Per upstream's installation instructions at http://postgis.net/docs/postgis_installation.html#create_new_db_extensions, if PostGIS is built without RASTER enabled, you must enable spatial extensions using the following procedure:

createdb yourdatabase
createlang plpgsql yourdatabase
psql -d yourdatabase -f postgis.sql
psql -d yourdatabase -f postgis_comments.sql
psql -d yourdatabase -f spatial_ref_sys.sql
psql -d yourdatabase -f rtpostgis.sql
psql -d yourdatabase -f raster_comments.sql
psql -d yourdatabase -f topology.sql
psql -d yourdatabase -f topology_comments.sql
--if you built with sfcgal support --
psql -d yourdatabase -f sfcgal.sql
psql -d yourdatabase -f sfcgal_comments.sql

Is this still relevant?
