I tried doing this simply by backporting the Lenny packages to Etch (with the needed modifications to build postgresql 8.1 compatible binaries and such). This fails because the new package removes /usr/lib/postgresql/8.1/lib/liblwgeom.so.1.1, which makes the existing database fail entirely.
Is there a known process which allows this to work? If not, I see two options: 1. Create new package that can be installed together with the old postgresql-8.1-postgis (say postgresql-8.1-postgis13) 2. Create a symlink from liblwgeom.so.1.1 to liblwgeom.so.1.3 The gotcha for option 1 is the existing symlinks (liblwgeom.so and liblwgeom.so.1). If something on the system uses these, there may be unexpected trouble. With option 2 the problem is simpler. Is it even supposed to work? Any help would be appreciated, no need to cc me on replies, I am on the list. -- Arto Jantunen _______________________________________________ Pkg-grass-devel mailing list Pkgemail@example.com http://lists.alioth.debian.org/mailman/listinfo/pkg-grass-devel
