[SOLVED] Making a PKGBUILD that depends on postgresql-contrib

Hi all!

I was wondering what the best way to enforce a dependency on postgresql's contrib tree for a  package. I noticed that there is no longer a postgresql-contrib package in the AUR as far as I've looked, so I was wondering if there was some standard way of dealing with this issue. If not then if anyone could package up postgresql-contrib that would simplify my life and my user's lives as well.

Thanks for the help!!!

AFAIK, `postgresql-contrib` is part of `postgresql`, so your package should depend on `postgresql`

You can readily confirm the above with pacman, especially if you specify exactly what tools from postgresql-contrib you need.  Just taking a few random ones from the files list from an rpm of postgresql-contrib:

$ pacman -F oid2name
extra/postgresql 12.2-3
    usr/bin/oid2name
extra/postgresql-old-upgrade 11.7-2
    opt/pgsql-11/bin/oid2name

$ pacman -F pgbench
extra/postgresql 12.2-3
    usr/bin/pgbench
extra/postgresql-old-upgrade 11.7-2
    opt/pgsql-11/bin/pgbench

That's great! I looked through the postgresql package itself to see the contrib specific things but just couldn't confirm it for sure.

Thanks so much!
