README Installation error

Reported by: jeffmeyer Owned by: robe
Priority: medium Milestone: PostGIS 2.0.1
Component: documentation Version: 2.0.x
Keywords: ubuntu Cc:


Current doc reads:


To install PostGIS library and utilities, as postgres run::

make install

But, for a Ubuntu clean install of OS, PostGRESQL 9.1, and PostGIS 2.0, this yields the following error:

postgres@jeffmetp:~/postgis-2.0.1SVN$ sudo make install [sudo] password for postgres: postgres is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported. postgres@jeffmetp:~/postgis-2.0.1SVN$

As it is, following the install instructions will cause a fail.

Not sure what the proper installation instructions should be.
