PostgreSQL version: 8.0.1
Operating system: Linux
Description: Getting an "undefined symbol" when loading contrib mod.
I'm trying to use ltree to sort one of my table using a tree like column
("1", "1.1", "1.2", "2", "2.1", etc.)
Everything compiles, after my fix to the .sql.in -> .sql convertion
($(libdir) instead of $$libdir in pgxs.mk) and everything also seems to be
However, in version 7.4.6 and version 8.0.1, when I try to load the module,
it says it can't find the symbol errstart (one of the elog functions better
known as ereport).
There are a few versions if that helps at all...
gcc (GCC) 3.4.3
GNU ld version 220.127.116.11.18 20030206
ldd (GNU libc) 2.3.2
There is the complete message I'm getting from postgres
crm=> SET search_path = public;
crm=> CREATE FUNCTION ltree_in(cstring)
crm-> RETURNS ltree
crm-> AS '/usr/local/pgsql/lib/ltree'
crm-> LANGUAGE 'C' WITH (isstrict);
