Problems which have come to light after the 8.0 image went to press

Many of these problems will be fixed in our code repository now, and eligible to go into a possible 8.0.1 release. Fixes given below can be applied by hand; USB-drive and Virtual-machine users will only have to do it once, DVD users will have to re-do it every time they boot. "Sorry for the inconvenience."

GeoNode

Problem

Layers do not properly load.

Solution

In discussion.


GMT and MB-System

Problem

GMT in Ubuntu 14.04 has a bug reading the coastline files causing the pscoast program to crash or never complete.

Solution

In discussion.

GRASS GIS IPython Examples

Using the Processing (SEXTANTE) Toolbox in QGIS breaks GRASS's startup history file, which causes the IPython examples to fail. Users will have to start GRASS and reset the GIS Database path to /home/user/grassdata, then start in a GRASS session and exit from it again. The new startup history file is saved upon exiting from the GRASS terminal session.

OpenJUMP

Problem

Fails to start on systems with more than 4GB of RAM.

Solution

Edit the /usr/bin/openjump startup script and comment out the JAVA_MAXMEM= on line 185.

uDig

Problem

The program crashes the first time you run it.

Solution

Just try again, after that it works ok.


Other

(minor issues)

  • Mapfish database exists in QGIS's list of Postgres databases, but is not available.
  • The 52nSOS database in QGIS's list of Postgres databases is actually "52nsos", all lower case. You can fix that with the [Edit] button.
