New packages for Ubuntu available

15.03.2007 – 9:49 am

I finally managed to get vmplayer up and running (which was really pain in this network), so I tried to
generate first set of amd64 packages of GRASS and related programs. I
also recompiled everything, so it uses GDAL 1.4.0 now.

List of currently supported programs and their version:

  • GRASS GIS 6.2.1 (stable)
  • GDAL/OGR 1.4.0 (stable)
  • PROJ4 4.5.0 (stable)
  • QGIS 0.8 (development)
  • GPSBABEL 1.3.2 (stable)
  • UMN MapServer 4.10 (stable)

Supported architectures:

  • i386
  • amd64

Version of Ubuntu: 6.10 (Edgy Eft)

I also added sources, so you can download them via apt-get source and
recompile according to your needs.

To use it, point your browser to or place

         deb edgy multiverse
         deb-src edgy multiverse

to your /etc/apt/sources.list. You can also dowload my PGP key using

sudo wget -O - | apt-key add -

I would appreciate any feedback, especially for the AMD64 platform.

  2. Question: Try to load edgy multiverse, but Ubuntu does not identify bzip2 compression. I´m a Ubuntu Newcomer so I dunno what to do

  4. #1: You have to add ubuntu multiverse and universe repositories in /etc/apt/sources.list to be able to use related packages.

  5. #2: Did you try to install grass via apt-get or downloaded && dpkg -i ?
