[Pkg-grass-general] Re: [GRASSLIST:4946] grass 5.7 vs. Debian sid
Glad to hear the libogdi31.so bug is fixed. But can someone confirm
that http://grass.itc.it/grass57/binary/linux/snapshot/ will really
work on Debian sid before I try the long download again. Do test all
areas, e.g., d.vect. As a wild guess experiment I tried
ln -s libgrass_datetime.5.7.cvs.so libogdi31.so
but this only revealed a new
libgrass5.so.0: cannot open shared object file
which I hope won't greet me on the next download.
So I then did
ln -s libgrass_datetime.5.7.cvs.so libgrass5.so.0
but now d.vect says I have no vector files.
Of course a real .deb would be even neater. However sizes like
$ aptitude -v show grass
Compressed Size: 34.3M
mean I would only be able to get it on one of my rare
trips to town.
Odd, 7MB for source on
sounds like the 7MB for binary on
and not the several times larger file one sees with
apt-get source grass --print-uris
Hmmm, how did it get so slim and trim?
Well if I Use The Source, then I would have been immune from the above
problems in the first place?
