Postgres 9.5 ARM Docker Build

Build Postgres for ARM architecture using Docker.


Available as .tar.gz in the Github Releases section. Extract and move .debs to /tmp, then follow the directions lifted from this blog post:

sudo mkdir /var/local/repository
echo "deb [ trusted=yes ] file:///var/local/repository ./" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/my_own_repo.list
cd /var/local/repository
sudo mv /tmp/*.deb .
dpkg-scanpackages ./ | sudo tee Packages > /dev/null && sudo gzip -f Packages
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install postgresql-9.5

Building yourself

Either use a Raspberry Pi or fire up a Scaleway ARM cloud VM to build. You then can install the latest Docker version which is packaged by Hypriot:

sudo dpkg -i docker-hypriot_1.10.3-1_armhf.deb
systemctl start docker


make build
make deb
make tarball

Copy the deb tarball, generate the checksums (if needed):

scp remote:~/postgres.tar.gz .
openssl dgst -sha256 postgres.tar.gz


  • Put the deb into a proper repository like Package Cloud or Launchpad PPA (which doesn't support ARM at the moment).
