postgis install script triggers "obsolete major version 8.3" message

Reported by: camerons Owned by: live-demo@…
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: OSGeoLive Keywords: 3.0-alpha3 postgis


In building the 3.0-alpha3 version of the liveDVD, I'm getting the following query come up (which requires acknowledgement). It comes up in the script.

How do you suggest this should be handled? Should we be updating the LiveDVD install script for Postgres to a later version? Could I tempt you to update the LiveDVD install script? (current version is r2716)

Issue 1: Should we upgrade to a later version of posgres? Issue 2: Please ensure the user is not prompted for a response during the build process and we wish this to be automated.

It seems perfectly sensible to move to postgresql 8.4. And I would suggest changing the script to postgis 1.4 when possible, but you'll need to check with the various dependencies to make sure it won't break. Don't have an ubuntu environment handy atm to check what packages are readily available I'm afraid.

Script is now updated to 8.4/1.4 There seem to be some data import errors but data is making it in, maybe someone who knows more about postgis can check the attached.
