Trying to load spatial tables in Qgis master 1.7.90-42 (3e91332) via Postgis provider return this error in log windows:

Unable to get feature type or srid for the_geom of "risorse_idriche"." 

dbname='ambiente' host=localhost port=5432 user='postgres' password='cb1972' 
sslmode=disable srid=26591 type=Point table="risorse_idriche"." 
DBRIP_conc_idro_p" (the_geom) sql= is an invalid layer - not loaded

Errornous query: SELECT upper(type),srid FROM geography_columns WHERE

LINE 1: SELECT upper(type),srid FROM geography_columns WHERE f_table...

Failed to get geometry details for PostGIS column DBRIP_conc_idro_p.the_geom.

The CREATE Code for the table is:

CREATE TABLE risorse_idriche."DBRIP_conc_idro_p" 
  "PKUID" integer NOT NULL DEFAULT nextval('risorse_idriche."DBRSP_conc_idro_p_gid_seq"'::regclass),
  id_pzo character varying(80),
  the_geom geometry,
  CONSTRAINT "DBRSP_conc_idro_p_pkey" PRIMARY KEY ("PKUID"),
  CONSTRAINT enforce_dims_the_geom CHECK (st_ndims(the_geom) = 2),
  CONSTRAINT enforce_geotype_the_geom CHECK (geometrytype(the_geom) = 'POINT'::text OR the_geom IS NULL),
  CONSTRAINT enforce_srid_the_geom CHECK (st_srid(the_geom) = 26591)
CREATE INDEX "DBRSP_conc_idro_p_the_geom_gist" 
  ON risorse_idriche."DBRIP_conc_idro_p" 
  USING gist

This table is perfectly read and represented by QGis 1.7.3 and master 1.90.90 (1816274).
Postgres 8.4 and Postgis 1.4

#3 Updated by Alessandro Ciali over 12 years ago

Still present in the latest version downloadable by OSGeo4w-setup.exe for Win (1.9.90-42 - 2d8b1ab)
I will try for future updates when possible

#4 Updated by Miha Požauko over 12 years ago

I came across the same problem as Alessandro described.

#5 Updated by Sai Nerella about 12 years ago

I have a similar problem. The version I downloaded using OSGeo4w-setup.exe is (1.9/90-alpha QGIS code revision: dbe6497)

I had a saved QGIS project with Postgis layers which stopped working with the above release.

should work in current master (both versions tried after my plea to try master, were older than master at that point).
