How to Install Postgresql ???

Postby juniorsatanas » Wed Apr 26, 2017 14:53

Good morning, I used Debian for years, since Marumbi, I see a lot of Sabayon talk, and I decided to test, I am Systems Engineer, I need the following installed tools:
Where can I find wikis books on how to install all this?

When I try to connect and access or start PostgreSQL I get this error!

Sabayon postgresql-9.6 # sudo su -c "createuser --superuser gisuser" postgres Createuser: could not connect to database postgres: could not connect to server: File or directory not found The server is running locally and accepting Connections in the Unix domain socket "/run/postgresql/.s.PGSQL.5432"? Sabayon postgresql-9.6 # psql --version Psql (PostgreSQL) 9.6.2

linux postgresql

    If you need the latest version, you will have to dig into Portage.

  2. W
    If you mean the tool which shows who is logged on and what they are doing, you need procps
    Code: Select all
    # equo install --ask sys-process/procps

    There are several versions in Entropy available:
    Code: Select all
    # equo s -vq dev-db/postgresql

    To install a specific version you can specify the slot like this:
    Code: Select all
    # equo i -a dev-db/postgresql:9.6
    Read the postinstall messages, they will probably give an answer to your setup issues.

    Code: Select all
    # equo i -a dev-db/mongodb

    Just download the tar.gz package from the website, unpack and run the code binary.
    Code: Select all
    $ wget -O vscode.tar.gz ""
    $ tar -xzvf vscode.tar.gz
    $ cd VSCode-linux-x64/
    $ ./code

Also useful for especially the database servers is Docker. Use docker search to find an image and get it via docker pull. These have full dependencies already configured and installed, so you do not have to mess with your development system.

Instructions on how to start images can usually be found on the image's page on docker hub. In addition to the run command specified one can use parameter "--net=host" to quickly fix problems with inaccessible network ports (be careful with this on public networks and production systems).

e.g. for postgres image

Find the image:
Code: Select all
$ docker search postgres
NAME                              DESCRIPTION                                     STARS     OFFICIAL   AUTOMATED
postgres                          The PostgreSQL object-relational database ...   3988      [OK]       

Get the image:
Code: Select all
$ docker pull postgres
(wait to complete)

List your images:
Code: Select all
$ docker images
REPOSITORY              TAG                 IMAGE ID            CREATED             SIZE
postgres                latest              1227c4263c8c        3 days ago          265MB

Run an image:
Code: Select all
$ docker run --net=host --name postgresdb -e POSTGRES_PASSWORD="masterpassword" -d postgres

List running containers (adding -a parameter displays all containers):
Code: Select all
$ docker ps

Use e.g. the psql client (it's in Sabayon dev-db/postgresql package) to connect to the running database:

Code: Select all
$ psql -h localhost -U postgres

Or install Squirrel
