Trying to install postgresql16-client on an Alpine Docker Container
I’m trying to create a Docker container with postgresql16-client but i’m getting an error saying that the package does not exist.
I’m going to also install dotnet 8 on this container in order to run an API, the postgresql16-client i will be using to pg_dump a database
I have no clue which repositories I have to import, how do you know which repositories you need in Linux in order to install a program?
I found this site but I don’t know how to fetch this repository https://pkgs.alpinelinux.org/package/edge/main/x86_64/postgresql16-client
Any help is appreciated!
According to your posted image, you are using alpine v3.15 which does not include
According to the link you posted, you would need to use either Alpine Edge or Alpine v3.19 for
postgresql16-client to be available in the package repositories.
The only Alpine version with
dotnet8-* packages right now is Alpine Edge, so you would need to use that version for your Docker containers.
A note if you are not aware: Alpine Edge is the current development tree of Alpine Linux used mainly for testing and may not be as stable as a released version.
