Non-installation of postgresql
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:59 EST
Description of problem:
If postgresql server is selected during installation, then the
postgresql packages are not installed. I presume that anaconda
is the correct package to report this against?
Every time. I've tried one or two different configurations with the
same results each time. The common theme was installing a text
only server running postgresql and little else.
The obvious workaround is just to install postgresql by hand which
appears to work just fine.
Which package groups did you choose? Did you go into the group
details and ensure the server was selected?
It doesn't appear to matter exactly which groups I chose. In each
case I was doing a text mode install and I selected all the groups
for development/admin tools which were not obviously going to
bring in the X-Window RPMs. I also selected the "postgresql server"
group (obviously) each time.
I didn't do any individual package selection. I relied on the groups
to bring in the correct packages by default, so maybe the bug is just
that the postgresql server isn't a default selection under the
"postgresql server" group?
The postgresql and postgresql-server packages should probably marked as default
if the postgres group is selected. Note that the MySQL group has this same
problem. Same situation in Rawhide.
Thanks for the report - fixed!
