[mapguide-internals] mgos 2.1 state

Hi Warren,

For MapGuide 2.1, you should be on MapGuide trunk and FDO 3.4 branch.

There are relatively few users of MapGuide on Linux (compared to Windows), and a smaller subset of them if any are using the Oracle and PostGIS providers.  And for MapGuide, as far as I know, Autodesk is only testing against one specific RHEL version of Linux, so anything outside of that environment is up to the community to catch and work to resolve.

I'd strongly suggest submitting bugs with strong descriptive titles, steps for reproduction, etc, as soon as you encounter the issue, and bring it up on the mailing list.  Bugs like 188 flounder because there isn't a user advocating for them and willing to test fixes.  At this point, we've missed the boat for the FDO 3.4.0 release, but since you're building from SVN if a fix can be committed to the 3.4 branch then you're set.

I'm sorry if this isn't to the correct group. But I'm wondering the same. I have been building off the svn trunk. I assume this is where the 2.1 release will come from?

I've been building off the trunk since January on CentOS 4.7, 5.2, 5.3, Suse versions.. Ubuntu, etc. Mostly using 4.1.2 and 4.1.3 compiler. I've had many builds work. But none would run reliably.

Mostly due to issues with PostGIS and King Oracle provider causing failures. Also, there are problems with un-defined symbols like g_LogFileName in libKingOracleProvider.so
and crypt in libPostGISProvider.so

I've see ticket 188 to address the problem with crypt. But I've seen know one else post anything about g_LogFileName.

Any pointers to the best svn to build from. And has anyone had a build actually work using PostGIS and King Oracle?

I'm planning a new project and i'm thinking in mgos 2.1. What's the state of
this version? What are the bugs pending to solve?
