When trying to run the configure command for postgis 2.4.5, I come across this alert:

configure: WARNING: --------- GEOS VERSION WARNING ------------

I tried installing geos 3.7 separately but it didn’t get picked up in the postgis configuration. How can I update the geos component that is part of the bitnami stack?

Hi @hlau,

We build the different components the stacks include from scratch. In this case, I verified that we are using GEOS 3.5.1 when building PostgreSQL. Using a new version of GEOS implies building PostgreSQL again and that’s not an easy task.

I’m going to open a new task in our board to update the GEOS version but we can’t provide you with an estimation about when this will be available. As this is just only a WARNING message, did you obtain any error message when continuing the process? Can you try a previous version of PostGIS?
