About the Mandriva 2008 FOSS4G Toolkit CD

We have been packing some of the software in the OSGeo stack since the Mandrake (now Mandriva) Linux 10.0 distribution. We call our packaged CD as FOSS4G Toolkit CD.

The RPM have been built by obtaining SOURCE RPM from various sources. We tested SOURCE RPM, modified the RPM SPEC files when necessary and rebuilt RPM packages on our local machine.

This page contains information about the FOSS4G Toolkit for Mandriva Linux 2008 distribution that has been released in October 2007. We have mainly used the SOURCE RPM of OSGeo Software stack available in the Mandrake/official/current/SRPMS/contrib/release/ directory available at the Mandriva Linux 2008 FTP mirror and our experience in making the Mandriva Linux 2006 FOSS4G CD Toolkit to test, modify the SPEC files when necessary and rebuild RPM packages for Mandriva Linux 2008 on our local machine.
