Ubuntu GIS – THE source of GIS for you

11.11.2009 – 7:56 am

I was providing packages of GIS related software for Ubuntu distributions, because of I was packaging the software for me anyways and I just let them on the server. Many people seemed to be using them, but it is truth, that with the time, I moved from desktop-gis world to web-gis. I had no time to test the software properly and many times it was simply not working. But still, the GRASS 6.4 rc4 for Ubuntu 9.04 was the most commented post on this blog.

I will stop now to compile custom packages, at least, until Ubuntu GIS will provide up-to-date packages, which are working. Many thanks to all Ubuntu-GIS people, they are doing a good job.

So, now, all who want to have up-to-date software, add

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntugis/ubuntugis-unstable/ubuntu karmic main 
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntugis/ubuntugis-unstable/ubuntu karmic main

to your /etc/apt/sources.list file (works for jaunty too).

  5. Incompatible library version for module. You need to rebuild GRASS or untangle multiple installations.

  6. I seem to keep getting a syntax error when I attempt to do a build. Anyone Ubuntu GIS experts on here that can lend a hand?
