perhaps the trouble is actually in the preceding installer?

All projects that pull postgresql-9.1-postgis must switch to postgresql-9.1-postgis-2.0 according to #1154

I'm aware of this issue with the changed package name of PostGIS. It's an unfortunate situation, because it seems to me that the stable UbuntuGIS PPA provides postgresql-9.1-postgis and unstable PPA postgresql-9.1-postgis-2.0

Furthermore the support for postgresql-9.1-postgis-2.0 was not complete in unstable PPA for all recent Ubuntu releases ... until yesterday (I just checked).

So now at least I can build new packages based on "unstable" PPA (which I got already warned on the UbuntuGIS ML is unstable and may break anytime ;-)

Yes, this situation is causing various problems during last week

I still do not have a successful build since alpha3... :)

Yes, when I updated to the new package to test and build, first I got QGIS uninstalled.

So why do we have to use unstable PPA? I know, that in the past we had to use it, because stable PPA did not really provide exciting packages. But now it looks much better and "stable" would be a lot better to avoid troubles like this one.

Any reason not to use "stable" PPA?

This is a good subject for tonight's weekly meeting on IRC. I support the idea of OSGeoLive being based on UbuntuGIS stable.

Resolution: fixed
Status: assignedclosed

A new pgRouting version (v2.0.0-rc1) has been released, which might be the final version for OSGeo Live 7.0

So I created new Ubuntu packages, which accept either the old or the new PostGIS package name as dependency, which should solve this issue.

Let's see with the next build if everything install again.

confirmed. pgRouting is included in build 10382.
