(Note: please CC replies to me as I am unsure how to join the list at the moment).
I have GeoServer 1.6.4 setup on Ubuntu Hardy 8.04.1.
It can connect to a PostgreSQL / PostGIS 1.3 database, with GEOS 2.2.3, but fails to be able to access spatially enabled columns.
According to the PostGIS documentation webpage ( http://postgis.refractions.net/documentation/ ) PostGIS requires GEOS 3.0.
As mentioned in the GeoServer FAQ, GeoServer may hang if PostGIS does not have GEOS installed (see http://geoserver.org/display/GEOSDOC/GeoServer+hangs+when+requesting+from+a+PostGIS+data+store ). This is the behaviour I get, which would make sense as I only have the below recommended 2.2.3 version.
I am reluctant to jump into compiling such a complex system unless I really have to. Are there plans to release the GEOS 3.0 library for Ubuntu ? If I know it's coming along then I can plan around this and do other things in the meantime.
