Installing PgAdmin3 1.8.0 with Gentoo Linux

Filed under: Software — Tags: , , , , — Dennis @ 12:35 pm

Today, my quest for the latest and greatest software has led me to a new release of PgAdmin3. The Gentoo ebuilds for the project are terribly out of date. Before setting out to install the new version of this software, I decided I better figure out why it hasn’t been added to the official Gentoo portage tree.

The new version of PgAdmin requires wxGTK-2.8.*. There is a request for enhancement open already. The reason it hasn’t been closed is that there were a lot of packages that depended on anything greater that wxGTK-2.6 when they were added to portage. Those had to be fixed before a new wxGTK could be added because the newer wxGTK is not compatible. There is also a request for a newer PgAdmin that is marked that it will be resolved later.

Now, moving on to overcoming all this and getting the software right now. (more…)
