Thanks @kiz, sorry for procrastinating on this for so long. :(

If you want to take over maintainership, let me know.

Updated to 9.4beta3: http://www.postgresql.org/about/news/1547/

Again, a pg_upgrade is required; do that BEFORE installing the new package version.

Updated to 9.4beta2: http://www.postgresql.org/about/news/1533/

This version requires a pg_upgrade like last time, BEFORE installing the new package version.

Updated to 9.4beta1.

The upgrade procedure from 9.3 is the same as before. After makepkg and BEFORE INSTALLING, run:

systemctl stop postgresql
mv /var/lib/postgres/data /var/lib/postgres/data9.3
sudo -u postgres /PATH/TO/postgresql-testing/pkg/postgresql-testing/usr/bin/initdb --locale en_US.UTF-8 -D /var/lib/postgres/data
cd /tmp
sudo -u postgres /PATH/TO/postgresql-testing/pkg/postgresql-testing/usr/bin/pg_upgrade -b /usr/bin -B /PATH/TO/postgresql-testing/pkg/postgresql-testing/usr/bin -d /var/lib/postgres/data9.3 -D /var/lib/postgres/data
# install new package
start postgresql

9.4beta1 is out

intgr commented on 2013-09-09 14:14

Updated to 9.3.0 final release, see release announcement: http://www.postgresql.org/about/news/1481/

Sorry I missed the rc1 :)

When upgrading from beta2, no pg_upgrade is necessary.

For upgrading from beta1 or earlier, see the pg_upgrade instructions in earlier comments.

Updated to 9.3beta2, I also fixed the provides= line so dependencies now correctly detect it as newer than 9.2. For upstream changes, see: http://www.postgresql.org/about/news/1471/

The catalog on-disk format has changed between beta1 and beta2, so you need to perform the upgrade procedure again like last time. BUILD this package first, but DO NOT INSTALL yet. Then perform these steps:

systemctl stop postgresql
mv /var/lib/postgres/data /var/lib/postgres/data-old
sudo -u postgres /PATH/TO/postgresql-testing/pkg/postgresql-testing/usr/bin/initdb --locale en_US.UTF-8 -D /var/lib/postgres/data
cd /tmp
sudo -u postgres /PATH/TO/postgresql-testing/pkg/postgresql-testing/usr/bin/pg_upgrade --link -b /usr/bin -B /PATH/TO/postgresql-testing/pkg/postgresql-testing/usr/bin -d /var/lib/postgres/data-old -D /var/lib/postgres/data

After this has successfully finished, you can install the package and 'systemctl start postgresql' again.

Sorry, I have been on vacation and too lazy to update this package. Yes, I will continue to update this package with newer betas and RC versions. Usually I'm faster with my updates.

> Maybe, for testing could be created postgresql-libs-testing package ?

That's not needed, the libs are included with postgresql-testing. But it wasn't working correctly before, because I had the provides= line wrong. It should be fixed now. Let me know if you still have problems.

Before I've looking this package I would like creating own package for PostgreSQL 9.3 Beta / Release Candidate versions for testing it. I've installing and testing your this package and it's work fine. But for use contrib libraries I could install additional libraries (please look to postgresql-libs package in Extra repository of Archlinux).

Now, I have 2 proposals for changing:
- It's there possible upgrade this postgres-testing package to last version 9.3 Beta 2 of PostgreSQL? And next time to Release Candidate version (when it will publish) ?
- In Extra Archlinux repository we are 2 PostgreSQL main pacakages: postgresql and postgresql-libs. Maybe, for testing could be created postgresql-libs-testing package ?
