Installation on Ubuntu

Important

Only valid for pgRouting v1.x. For pgRouting v2.0 or higher see http://docs.pgrouting.org

Note

Installation on Ubuntu 9.04 (with PostgreSQL 8.3) with TSP and Driving Distance (Extras). (After had some troubles to install pgRouting on Ubuntu 8.10, it works again with Ubuntu 9.04.)

Install required packages

sudo apt-get install build-essential git-core cmake
sudo apt-get install postgresql-8.3-postgis postgresql-server-dev-8.3

If you’re not planning to install CGAL from Ubuntu multiverse, you can use default Boost library from the repository. This will be version 1.34 at the moment.

sudo apt-get install libboost-graph-dev
  • For Driving Distance
sudo apt-get install libcgal*

Note

If you install CGAL later from Ubuntu multiverse it will upgrade to Boost 1.35. This might cause troubles if you compiled pgRouting core already with Boost 1.34.

  • For TSP
wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/gaul/gaul-devel-0.1849-0.tar.gz
tar -xzf gaul-devel-0.1849-0.tar.gz
cd gaul-devel-0.1849-0/
./configure --disable-slang
make
sudo make install
sudo ldconfig

Compile pgRouting core (with TSP and DD flag on)

git clone git://github.com/pgRouting/pgrouting.git pgrouting

cd pgrouting/
cmake -DWITH_TSP=ON -DWITH_DD=ON .
make
sudo make install

Setup PostgreSQL

Set local database connections to “trust” in “pg_hba.conf” to be able to work with PostgreSQL as user “postgres”. Then restart PostgreSQL.

sudo gedit /etc/postgresql/8.3/main/pg_hba.conf
sudo /etc/init.d/postgresql-8.3 restart

Create routing database

createdb -U postgres routing
createlang -U postgres plpgsql routing
