semi-bumped now. a build-checklist.txt in svn might help ..

still propagating packaging errors in this one leaving the
system in a broken state...

5.0a2 quick build log review:

${CURLY} brackets do nothing to protect the command line from
spaces and special chars within variables. Use "double quotes"
for that.

FIXME: 'export FOO=bar' is a Bashism and will not work with Ubuntu's #!/bin/sh  (which is dash)

GeoMajas FIXME: Do not use 777 if at all possible.

any way to make your 250mb package smaller?

deegree, openjump, maptiler:
FIXME: don't use wget for local files, just copy from local svn checkout:  cp ../app-conf/$FILE $DEST

> mv: cannot stat `gvSIG19_new_features.tar.gz': No such file or directory

temporary DNS trouble, now fixed?
Static copy of Denver.osm.bz2 now stashed on OSGeo download server, note
many times bigger than Barcelona, which may make the PostGIS DB

a number of errors, e.g.:
> DataError: value too long for type character varying(64)
> OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: 'applications/eden/compiled'

> ... Ushahidi already downloaded
> tar: A lone zero block at 17095

(probably want to do a timestamp check with the wget, but -N and -O are
mutually exclusive)

> ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost'

there is no root password. try operating as another user name.

geopublisher, atlasstyler:

script is very verbose, making it hard to pick out real error

.debs need to be updated for Ubuntu 11.04, ie to not depend on odbcinst1debian1
Uses a disproportionate amount of disc space (>375mb). please
find ways to slim it down.

[after this all other deb installs are broken for the rest of the ISO build..]

wants libgdal1-1.7.0, but only 1.6.0 and 1.8.0 are available.
-> rebuild for natty
WARNING: wget -N timestamping does nothing in combination with -O.

please shut off pgsql verbose mode & fix errors, if possible.

fails-- no packages for ubuntu/natty found in PPA.

[after this even less of the apt system works...]

disc space:
can we safely uninstall linux-headers-2.6.38-8? (81.5mb)
+ linux-headers-2.6.38-8-generic (10mb)
(is building the proprietary nvidia driver a critical need?)
