Thank you for your interest in our Intel products.
What OS are you running on Edison?
You can find steps to install the program in the following link depending on what OS you are using:
Hope this helps.
It is possible it could through opkg though we haven't tested it yet.
I found a tutorial here on how to do so: https://forums.ni.com/t5/NI-Linux-Real-Time-Documents/Tutorial-PostgreSQL-with-LabVIEW/ta-p/3491581
Hope this helps.
There is large opkg repository for edison here: Edison opkg package repo created Unfortunately it does not include postgresql.
Postgresql is supplied by the yocto project, so if you build your image from source you only need to add postgresql to your list of packages to be installed.
Building from scratch is becoming more difficult as yocto downloads sources from urls that might be broken by now. An effort to get images that build is here:GitHub - htot/meta-intel-edison: Here is the meta-intel-edison that builds, tries to stay up to date and provides a PREE…
All effort here is now aimed at building using a current yocto version (currently pyro), with current vanilla u-boot (currently 2018.01) and linux kernel (currently 4.14) with minimal amount of specific patches. Next steps, providing acpi tables to the kernel from u-boot and switching to rocko.
Thank you so much for your responses, I finally got it.
I downloaded the source code from here:
first I did ./configure
next I did "make" but threw error, so I did "make clean", and that was the solution
next make install
Once the postgres was installed i went to installation folder and did
initdb -D /some/folder/for/your/bds
and that was all. I was able to use psql, that is the tool for using postgres command promt
Pd. you need an user named "postgres" to run psql
Thanx again for your responces
That is exactly what Yocto would be doing for you: download, configure, build, package, install.
Compared to manually doing the same, Yocto takes care of dependencies, builds it's own compiler to create a reproducible environment and packages the result. The resulting packages (opkg by default, dpkg in my case) can then be installed on the system image or manually on the Edison using the package manager.
