  7. thanks Jachym!
    but there’s a problem.. aptitude complains (404 not found)

  8. #6 Anne: Maybe, you are trying to get sources as well. Try to switch it off. I uploaded empty Sources.gz file right now and hope, it helps. If not, could you send me what was “not found” ? Thanks

  9. this is the output of aptitude update:

    Ign gutsy Release.gpg
    Ign gutsy/multiverse Translation-it
    Ign gutsy Release
    Ign gutsy/multiverse Packages
    Err gutsy/multiverse Packages
    404 Not Found

    I added the line in sources.list just like you suggested above.
    How I can switch off getting sources?

    Thank you :)

  10. Thanks for the repository !!!!!

    one problem: I install the grass plugin from your repository but I cant find the plugin inside qgis 0.9 ! even if I’m manually looking for it ! why ?

  11. Hi Jachym!
    I guess my problems come out because I have a 64-bit system.
    I solved a similar problem with Skype and I’ll try to fix also this one.

  12. #10 Anne: ahhgr, sorry, I did not prepare the packages for amd64 yet.

    However, since sources are there, you can compile and install them easy.

    apt-get source grass
    cd grass-6.2.2…
    dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot
    # fix missing packages
    dpkg -i ../*.deb

  13. Jachym, at first thanx for the repository!!
    As I’ve seen Emanuel also has some problems running QGIS 0.9 on 7.10 64-bit system. In my case I can install the grass-plugin but after that there exists a dependency problem between libgdal and the grass-plugins. The same problem exists if do install qgis 0.8 on my gutsy 64-bit system. Seems somehow strange…

  14. Any plan to make 64bit packages too ?

  15. Hi Jachym.
    Is it in your schedule the packaging of Mapserver 5 for the gutsy repo?

  16. #14: Hi giohappy. Why not …

    By Jachym on Dec 3, 2007

  17. I’ll wait for it :-)
    If you plan to package it within a month I’ll avoid recompiling it…

    By giohappy on Dec 3, 2007

  18. It should be at the server by now – let me know, if it works.

    By Jachym on Dec 3, 2007

  19. Wonderful Jachym!
    I wait your ready-steady-go to install it :-)

  20. Hi Jachym,
    I am newie to GRASS GIS. So, I hope my questions are not to simple.
    DATA AND PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: I have a SRTM -DEM, which I used to calculate slope and aspect. I also have ground control points (GCP) over the area. The GCP´s are in shape format.
    How can I extract raster values per location (point) in GRASS GIS?
    The Idea behind of it is that I want to compare
    slope, aspect, GCP,and SRTM -DEM values to determine the slope/aspect error dependency of the SRTM-DEM

    Thanks in advance

  21. Rengifo: 1) import dsn=your.shp out=vector

    2) new column to database table
    v.db.addcol map=vector columns=”slope DOUBLE,aspect DOUBLE”

    3) get the values
    v.what.rast vect=vector raster=slope column=slope
    v.what.rast vect=vector raster=aspect column=aspect
