I previously used the following to install BDR (9.4) on Ubuntu:

echo "deb http://packages.2ndquadrant.com/bdr/apt/ trusty-2ndquadrant main" > "/etc/apt/sources.list.d/2ndquadrant.list"
wget --quiet -O - http://packages.2ndquadrant.com/bdr/apt/AA7A6805.asc | sudo apt-key add -
echo "deb http:// apt.postgresql.org/pub/repos/apt/ trusty-pgdg main" > "/etc/apt/sources.list.d/pgdg.list"
wget --quiet -O - https:// www.postgresql.org/media/keys/ACCC4CF8.asc | sudo apt-key add -
apt-get update
apt-get install bdr-9.4

Since the end of May when I make use of this, it only installs normal PostgreSQL. I've tried this on Ubuntu 14.04, 15.10 and 16.04.

Any help in this regard would be highly appreciated.

  • Can you show error logs (postgresql.log)?

  • Here is the output on the following command: apt-get -y install bdr-9.4 | tee log. The output is too much so I have shared it on this link: wikisend.com/download/842626/log.txt Jun 6, 2016 at 7:59

I am not too sure about this, but it seems that BDR is build into PostgreSQL, since I added a shared_preload_library like this: shared_preload_libraries = 'bdr', it seems to be working the same as BDR or maybe better.
