Hi All,

I would like to add the OGR and Postgis providers to my Ubuntu install of
Mapguide Open Source and would appreciate it if someone could give me a
little help with it. I have tried to install the ogr provider from svn, but
this failed at the beginning of the configure stage with the message

followed by line upon line of error. I can post a log file of this if that
would be handy. Because the readme file with the source said that it wanted
gdal 1.4, and it wanted it somewhere accessible, I compiled and installed
gdal1.4.0 from source, which installed itself in /usr/local/share/gdal. My
fdo installation (installed as part of the mapguide installation) is in

When I look at the postgis provider in svn, I can't even tell how I would go
about installing it!

I thought that another option would be to include the providers into the
checkoutsvn.sh script for the fdo build, but I don't really know how I would
proceed from there.

If anyone can give me some pointers on this I'd be extremely grateful as I
have a very lonely postgresql database that's simply yearning to be put on a

Many thanks
