Steps for creating a "proper" Postgis 2.0 pacakge for Postgreql 9.1 on Debian Squeeze
I prefer to build in a chroot. Install debootstrap if you don't already have it. Change amd64 to i386 or whatever is necessary to suit your environment.
mkdir chroot sudo debootstrap --arch=amd64 squeeze chroot http://ftp.debian.org/debian/
Prevent start-stop-daemon from starting daemons inside the chroot.
sudo bash -c "echo exit 0 > chroot/sbin/start-stop-daemon"
Bind mount the necessary directories from the host and chroot.
sudo mount --bind /proc chroot/proc sudo mount --bind /sys chroot/sys sudo mount --bind /dev chroot/dev sudo mount --bind /dev/pts chroot/dev/pts sudo cp /etc/mtab chroot/etc/ sudo chroot chroot /bin/bash
Since you are already root inside the chroot there's no need to use sudo going forward.
Configure locales in the chroot as things will break if this isn't done.
apt-get update echo -e "en_US ISO-8859-1\nen_US.UTF-8 UTF-8" >> /etc/locale.gen apt-get install locales
Add the official Debian backports repo and pin the postgresql 9.1 dependency packages. Also add debhelper, as version 9 is required for building GEOS, which is also available from backports.
cat >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/backports.list <<EOF deb http://backports.debian.org/debian-backports squeeze-backports main EOF cat >> /etc/apt/preferences.d/postgresql.pref <<EOF Package: libpq5 Pin: release o=Debian Backports Pin-Priority: 1000 Package: libpq-dev Pin: release o=Debian Backports Pin-Priority: 1000 Package: postgresql-client-common Pin: release o=Debian Backports Pin-Priority: 1000 Package: postgresql-common Pin: release o=Debian Backports Pin-Priority: 1000 Package: postgresql-server-dev-9.1 Pin: release o=Debian Backports Pin-Priority: 1000 Package: debhelper Pin: release o=Debian Backports Pin-Priority: 1000 EOF apt-get update
Install the dependencies required for building everything.
apt-get install build-essential debhelper postgresql-server-dev-9.1 doxygen swig ruby ruby1.8 ruby1.8-dev autotools-dev flex bison libproj-dev xsltproc docbook docbook-xsl default-jdk libpg-java fastjar libjts-java imagemagick libcunit1-dev dblatex libxml2-dev libgtk2.0-dev libgdal1-dev ant
Create a scratch directory to perform all the tasks and cd into it
mkdir scratch cd scratch
Build a GEOS 3.3.3 package. I used the control files from wheezy.
wget http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/g/geos/geos_3.3.3.orig.tar.gz tar xvf geos_3.3.3.orig.tar.gz cd geos-3.3.3 wget http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/g/geos/geos_3.3.3-1.1.debian.tar.gz tar xvf geos_3.3.3-1.1.debian.tar.gz rm -f geos_3.3.3-1.1.debian.tar.gz dpkg-buildpackage cd ..
Install the GEOS dev package to support building Postgis 2.0.
dpkg -i libgeos-dev_3.3.3-1.1_amd64.deb libgeos-c1_3.3.3-1.1_amd64.deb libgeos-3.3.3_3.3.3-1.1_amd64.deb
Download the two patch files from this page into the scratch directory.
Build Postgis 2.0. This uses the postgis 1.5.3 control files from squeeze. The two patches are applied here to fix an issue with the Postgis itself (a bad URL in java/jdbc/build.xml to the maven jar that ant requires for building), and to make the control files build the package. Ensure that both postgis_debian-2.0.1.patch and postgis_maven.patch are in the scratch directory.
wget http://postgis.org/download/postgis-2.0.1.tar.gz tar xvf postgis-2.0.1.tar.gz cd postgis-2.0.1 patch -p0 < ../postgis_maven.patch wget http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/p/postgis/postgis_1.5.3-2.debian.tar.gz tar xvfz postgis_1.5.3-2.debian.tar.gz rm -f postgis_1.5.3-2.debian.tar.gz patch -p0 < ../postgis_debian-2.0.1.patch rm -rf debian/source dpkg-buildpackage cd ..
Exit the chroot, umount the bind mounted directories from inside the chroot, copy the deb files that were created out, then delete the chroot.
exit sudo umount chroot/proc sudo umount chroot/sys sudo umount chroot/dev/pts sudo umount chroot/dev cp chroot/scratch/*.deb . sudo rm -rf chroot
Install the pacakges. This command line would install all packages created by this process. Obviously don't pick anything you don't really need. For example, I have no use for the GEOS ruby bindings or the Postgis java package.
sudo dpkg -i libgeos-3.3.3_3.3.3-1.1_amd64.deb libgeos-dbg_3.3.3-1.1_amd64.deb libgeos++-dev_3.3.3-1.1_amd64.deb libgeos-ruby1.8_3.3.3-1.1_amd64.deb libgeos-c1_3.3.3-1.1_amd64.deb libgeos-dev_3.3.3-1.1_amd64.deb libgeos-doc_3.3.3-1.1_all.deb libpostgis-java_2.0.1_all.deb postgis_2.0.1_amd64.deb postgresql-9.1-postgis_2.0.1_amd64.deb
