Installing dblink

Ridvan Lakas ng Bayan S. Baluyos
Hi list,

I'm currently having a problem. I cannot call the dblink_connect function of postgres.

pos=# select dblink_connect('dbname=postgres');
ERROR:  function dblink_connect("unknown") does not exist
HINT:  No function matches the given name and argument types. You may need to add explicit type casts.
pos=#

I've read this in the archives though but i still can't find the contrib-package he is talking about:

My postgres version is 8.1.8


Thanks in advance!

Which OS are you running? If you are running a Debian based Linux try:

$ apt-cache search postgresql

You will find a package called
postgresql-contrib - additional facilities for PostgreSQL (latest version)

$ apt-get install postgresql-contrib

installs the package. After that you should be able to use dblink like
A. Kretschmer was writing.

Hint: you should upgrade to version 8.3. postgresql-contrib package is
always for the latest version which is 8.3 on Debian Lenny.

Cheers
