GRASS 6.3 for ubuntu amd64

9.05.2008 – 12:19 am

Finally, I created the packages of GRASS 6.3.0 and GDAL 1.5.1 for Ubuntu Hardy Heron (currently amd64 only).

There were some issues regarding the Debian patching system, which was new to me. Another problem is, that the new wx-digitiser does not work yet. But you can already test the new-generation WxPython-based GRASS GUI.

Packages for i386 are comming soon, but if you can’t wait, you can just get the sources (apt-get source grass) and run

dpkg-source -x grass-6.3.0-0.dsc
cd grass-6.3.0
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot 

(and fix the dependences).

I hope to fix the wx-digitiser soon as well.

NOTE: The packages are working for me. But I do not know, if they are working for you as well. Please, let me know, in case there is some problem.

Special thanks to Frankie – the debian-gis maintainer, and GRASS Team!
