PostGIS 2.0 PKGBUILD for Arch Linux

PostGIS 2.0 is now in the official repository.  Ignore all this nonsense.

PKGBUILD linked below now builds PostGIS 2.0.1.  See this post for details.

I’ve put together a PKGBUILD file you can use if you want to install PostGIS 2.0 on your Arch system.  I’m not going to put it on AUR because it would conflict with the existing package, and also because I’ve never done this before so use this at your own risk.  You can download the PKGBUILD from here:  https://github.com/philbns/PostGIS-2.0-PKGBUILD.

I didn’t tarball the PKGBUILD so you can just download it to an empty directory and run

makepkg -s

to build the package and then

pacman -U postgis-2.0.0-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

to install it.

Once the package is installed look at the PostGIS manual to see how to set up or upgrade a spatial database.

This build includes the GUI shapefile loader. If you don’t want it or don’t need it edit –with-gui out of the ./configure statement and remove gtk2 from the dependencies.
