can't find admin81.sql for postgresql-8.1 server instrumenta

Postby _lalo » 2008/07/19 20:55:37

Hi i installed postgresql-8.1.11-1.el5_1.1 and PgAdmin3 using Yum, when I connect to my database using PgAdmin3 it throws this message:

The server lacks instrumentation functions.

pgAdmin III uses some support functions that are not available by default in all PostgreSQL versions.
These enable some tasks that make life easier when The server lacks instrumentation functions.

After the module is installed, you need to create the instrumentation functions in your maintenance database using the admin.sql script (admin81.sql for PostgreSQL 8.1) which are usually located in the pgsql share directory (e.g. /usr/local/pgsql/share)

--------------------------------------------
i run as root:
find / -name admin81.sql

an no results are thrown.

OK so the CentOS team didn't compile PostgreSQL with the admin module, so I need to doit by hand.

I install the sources (postgresql-contrib-8.1.11-1.el5_1.1)with yum:
yum install postgresql-contrib

then i tried to find something about the admin81 in the postgresqql-contrib, i execute:

rpm -qil postgresql-contrib

But i still can't find the admin81.sql script, and also I don't know what module is the admin module that I need to load if there is one....

ps.
Instrumentation really seemed like a core thing that one would want in a database.

Re: can't find admin81.sql for postgresql-8.1 server instrumentation functions

To succesfully install the server instrumentation functions I download this package:
admin81-1.4.3.tar.gz
from here:
http://www.postgresql.org/ftp/pgadmin3/ ... dminpacks/

But also need the postgresql-devel, that match postgresql-8.1.11-1.el5_1.1 to re-compile it from source

so i execute:
yum install postgresql-devel

Ok I'm going to tray to install everything, and I'm going to post my results.

Re: can't find admin81.sql for postgresql-8.1 server instrumentation functions

After I downloaded the admin81-1.4.3.tar.gz, I extracted the content. (tar -xzvf admin81-1.4.3.tar.gz). Then placed it into a directory called "contrib" wish is supposedly located in the source tree of postgresql, but it isn't so i created it:

$ cd /usr/lib/pgsql/pgxs/src/
$ mkdir contrib

Then now i moved the recently extracted admin81 into the contrib directory

$ move /home/you'reUser/admin81 /usr/lib/pgsql/pgxs/src/contrib/

ok now we take a look at the files of admin81

$ cd /usr/lib/pgsql/pgxs/src/contrib/admin81
$ ls
admin81.c admin81.sql.in Makefile README.admin81

then we take a clooser look to the content of the Makefile:

$ cat Makefile
subdir = contrib/admin81
top_builddir = ../..
include $(top_builddir)/src/Makefile.global

MODULE_big = admin81
PG_CPPFLAGS = -I$(libpq_srcdir)
DATA_built = admin81.sql
DOCS = README.admin81
OBJS = admin81.o

include $(top_srcdir)/contrib/contrib-global.mk


So as you see we have 2 includes in the make file, or dependencies as I see it, the Makefile.global and the contrib-global.mk
The first one (Makefile.global) is located at:
/usr/lib/pgsql/pgxs/src/Makefile.global
And the second is not present, because it was supposedly to be inside the "contrib" directory which I create by hand.

So until I find it I'm not going to be able to compile the Makefile. look

$ make all
Makefile:3: ../../src/Makefile.global: No such file or directory
Makefile:11: /contrib/contrib-global.mk: No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target `/contrib/contrib-global.mk'. Stop.


..ups 2 errors, easily I resolve the first one, just edit the Makefile and add ".." at the end of the top_builddir, to look like this:

$ cat Makefile
subdir = contrib/admin81
top_builddir = ../../..
include $(top_builddir)/src/Makefile.global

MODULE_big = admin81
PG_CPPFLAGS = -I$(libpq_srcdir)
DATA_built = admin81.sql
DOCS = README.admin81
OBJS = admin81.o

include $(top_srcdir)/contrib/contrib-global.mk


then again we execute make all:
$ make all
Makefile:11: ../../../contrib/contrib-global.mk: No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target `../../../contrib/contrib-global.mk'. Stop.


Ready just as I said before there's one file missing the contrib-global.mk, I'm going to look around to see how can I get it.
See you later.

Jesus Christ!!! I was looking in the wrong place:
here is the simple solution:
http://www.postgresql.org/docs/current/ ... ntrib.html

just what i need was the postgresql-contrib package and then run the sql scripts in the database that i want to have the additional functions

Well it's true but just applies to the version 8.3
In the middle time we are going to have to wait for a PostgreSQL update by RedHat o the ContOs Team
