I know that debian 11 comes with a postgres 13 and postgis distro, but it's
not the versions I need.

no pb to install the postgres 12.11 from postgresql.org

When installing a different postgresql version included in the Debian release, you need to install postgis from the apt.postgresql.org repo too:


When you need a different version of postgis than provided in Debian or apt.postgresql.org, you'll need to build it yourself.

but, when looking at the debian postgis page, I didnt find "nothing"
ie. I don't find what could be the name of the packet, and obviously not
the packet itself.

The postgis binary package Recommends postgresql-postgis which is provided by postgresql-13-postgis-3.

For postgresql-12 you'll need to install its postgis extension:


I am even unable to guess if such a packet do exist.

`apt-cache search postgis` is your friend.

Clearly, I do find a postgres-12-postgis-3 packet, but that one installs a
postgis 3.2.1  which is not my need.

Then you'll need to build the version of postgis that you need with the version postgresql that you use.

You should work with credativ, they provide PostgreSQL consulting and employ two of the maintainers of apt.postgresql.org.
