Description

For a couple different machines, any attempt to issue a 'CREATE EXTENSION postgis' results in the following error:, when I have the latest repository version installed:

ERROR: function st_astwkb(geometry, integer) does not exist

make check passes all tests. Does anyone know why this is happening?

Is it latest trunk you are using, or is it precompiled windows binaries? If so, from what date and revision?

comment:2 by phreakdawg, 8 years ago

This is the latest trunk from the official svn repository, as of yesterday evening.

comment:3 by phreakdawg, 8 years ago

Also, in case it's relevant, these are from 2 different Linux machines, not Windows.

I works as expected for me.

Is it a fresh database that you are trying to install in?

It is correct that function st_astwkb(geometry, integer) does not exist. It is a replaced with a version using default values instead of multiple functions.

see below.

So I don't really understand why that signature is requested at all.

CREATE OR REPLACE FUNCTION st_astwkb(
    geometry,
    integer,
    bigint DEFAULT NULL::bigint,
    boolean DEFAULT false,
    boolean DEFAULT false)
  RETURNS bytea AS
'$libdir/postgis-2.2', 'TWKBFromLWGEOM'
  LANGUAGE c IMMUTABLE
  COST 1;
ALTER FUNCTION st_astwkb(geometry, integer, bigint, boolean, boolean)

The only thing I can think of is if you haven't run ./configure after update. Then you might have old .sql files but new .sql.in files

It is a fresh database, and I am running configure. That is interesting to know that this function is replaced now. Tomorrow or Monday when I have time, I'm going to completely blow away both postgres and postgis on one of the machines and see what I get after that.

Well, blowing all my postgis files and reinstalling everything seemed to fix it. Somehow along the way they stopped updating some files I think.

Can we close this one out? I can't replicate the issue so seems like a corrupt install to me.

comment:9 by phreakdawg, 8 years ago

Yes should

close it
