postgis 3 packages conflict with postgis 2.5 packages via

Reported by: myon Owned by: pramsey
Priority: blocker Milestone: PostGIS 3.0.0
Component: postgis Version: master
Keywords: Cc: sebastic@…


In PostGIS 2.5, the version number was dropped from address_standardizer-$

2.4: /usr/lib/postgresql/10/lib/
2.5 and 3: /usr/lib/postgresql/10/lib/

This causes the Debian packages for postgresql-10-postgis-2.5 and postgresql-10-postgis-3 to conflict. (Same for other PostgreSQL versions.)

We've spent years on making co-installation of PostGIS packages for different versions possible. Please consider re-adding the major version number in the .so filenames for version 3. (2.5 can stay that way if it's the only version that does it.)

@robe Anything against bringing it back for 3.0 ( to help with packaging?

PR in I've reverted the change and also applied the --with-library-minor-version change.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Applied in r17482.

I don't think it's worth back-porting it to 2.5 at this point since it's a breaking change and it might cause some headaches.
