Total novice here! I am doing a neighborhood history mapping project and want to use a MapBox template. In order to do so I need to "have PostgreSQL installed & running with a PostGIS database setup within it."
I have an iMac model 8,1 running Snow Leopard 10.6.8
I have downloaded and installed PostgreSQL 9.1 - The install ran as per the example shown in the www.enterprisedb.com/resources-community/pginst-guide
I did not install any of the StackBuilder options as offered at the end of the install.
I downloaded PostGIS after installing the GEOS and PROJ4 frameworks as per the osm2pgsql installer instructions. I also downloaded and installed XCODE in order to get access to a c++ compiler.
./configure now runs from the PostGIS directory and generates the following error message > configure: error: could not find pg_config within the current path. You may need to try re-running configure with a --with-pgconfig parameter.
The PostGIS install instructions say: --with-pgconfig=FILE
PostgreSQL provides a utility called pg_config to enable extensions like PostGIS to locate the PostgreSQL installation directory. Use this parameter (--with-pgconfig=/path/to/pg_config) to manually specify a particular PostgreSQL installation that PostGIS will build against.
I did not find pg_config with finder or spotlight. I did find it at /Library/PostgreSQL/9.1/bin it does not seem to have an extension
both generate the error message "No such file or directory"
Can anyone help this novice out? I looked through PostgreSQL site and the only hint I found was something about "dev" extensions being needed.
