Hi all, I’ve successfully layered Fedora Silverblue 32 with PostgreSQL, PstGIS and PgAdmin4 by following these instructions
However, once rebooted, there is no signal of existence of PgAdmin4: the terminal doesn’t recognize the command pgadmin4 or pgadmin and it is not included in the application list in Gnome.
In addition, I was not able to edit the file /usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/pgadmin4-web/config_distro.conf. Trying with the commands chmod and seteonforce from root in order to change permissions gave no result: I could write inside the file but unable to save it. I tried to edit the file /etc/bashrc with vi but at the order of the Esc command there were no shift in mode, so I couldn’t even write on this file.
According to the mentioned instructions, the config_distro.conf must be reset with these paths:
LOG_FILE = ‘/var/log/pgadmin4/pgadmin4.log’
SQLITE_PATH = ‘/var/lib/pgadmin4/pgadmin4.db’
SESSION_DB_PATH = ‘/var/lib/pgadmin4/sessions’
STORAGE_DIR = ‘/var/lib/pgadmin4/storage’
I do not the real consequences of not having this file configured.
For the rest, I am very enthusiastic with the Silverblue project. I have Jupyter Lab, pandoc and a LaTex editor, which is enough to fulfill my job duties, installed in the default toolbox. And I am discovering every day the vast range of applications of buildah and pandoc. I failed to install PostgreSQL in the toolbox because there is no link to systemd. I am certain about the posibbility of running PostgreSQL from containers, but I made these instalations to learn SQL. In the meantime I am just content to digest a bunch of lessons in plain Linux with this experiment because I am a neophyte, as it can be deduced from this note. Thanks a lot for your attention.
