Bug - 11.8

Panchal, Avanish

Hi,

 

While installing postgre11.8 with ./configure, followed by make install.

 

Commands:

 

./configure –prefix= /pghome/11.8

 

make -j 4 && make install

 

Ran into 2 issues

 

  1. postgresql.service not present in systemd.

 

-bash-4.2$ sudo ls -ltr /usr/lib/systemd/system/postgres*
ls: cannot access /usr/lib/systemd/system/postgres*: No such file or directory

 

Also realized, code was complied with "with_systemd='no'. Potential reason of file not present in system.

 

Found rc file:  /pgbackup/postgresql-11.8/contrib/start-scripts and try to edit postgresql.service with respective paths per install.

 

  1. postgresql-11-check-db-dir not present

Apparently bin directory doesn’t have postgresql-11-check-db-dir so unable to put it at ExecStartPre=/pghome/11.8/bin/postgresql-11-check-db-dir ${PGDATA}

 

Please let me know if any steps missed.

 

Regards,

 

Avanish Panchal

 Where are you seeing the installing from source is supposed to create systemd units?


  1. postgresql-11-check-db-dir not present

Same, where is it documented this a source installation installs this binary?

Or, at least, installing from the source provided by the core project.  Maybe you want to download platform specific source packages and install those?  Or just use platform specific binary packages?

In short there is no bug here and you should post a more detailed message with goals to the -general discussion list.
