Installing PostGIS on RHEL 8 ppc64le v3.2


Before you begin the installation process:

  • Install Postgres on the same host. See:

  • Set up the EDB repository.

    Setting up the repository is a one-time task. If you have already set up your repository, you don't need to perform this step.

    To determine if your repository exists, enter this command:

    dnf repolist | grep enterprisedb

    If no output is generated, the repository isn't installed.

    To set up the EDB repository:

    1. Go to EDB repositories.

    2. Select the button that provides access to the EDB repository.

    3. Select the platform and software that you want to download.

    4. Follow the instructions for setting up the EDB repository.

  • Install the EPEL repository:

    sudo dnf -y install
  • Refresh the cache:

    sudo dnf makecache
  • Enable additional repositories to resolve dependencies:

    ARCH=$( /bin/arch ) subscription-manager repos --enable "codeready-builder-for-rhel-8-${ARCH}-rpms"

    If you are using a public cloud RHEL image, subscription manager may not be enabled and enabling it may incur unnecessary charges. Equivalent packages may be available under a different name such as codeready-builder-for-rhel-8-rhui-rpms. Consult the documentation for the RHEL image you are using to determine how to install codeready-builder.

Install the package

# To install PostGIS 3.2:
sudo dnf -y install edb-as<xx>-postgis32

# To install PostGIS 3.1 using EDB Postgres Advanced Server 13-15:
sudo dnf -y install edb-as<xx>-postgis3

# To install PostGIS 3.1 using EDB Postgres Advanced Server 11-12:
sudo dnf -y install edb-as<xx>-postgis

Where <xx> is the version of EDB Postgres Advanced Server. Replace <xx> with the version of EDB Postgres Advanced Server you are using. For example, edb-as15-postgis32.
