Live GIS Disc/Errata/8.0
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."
- New bugs may be reported and known bugs viewed on the OSGeo Trac system.
Layers do not properly load.
GMT and MB-System
GMT in Ubuntu 14.04 has a bug reading the coastline files causing the pscoast program to crash or never complete.
Fails to start on systems with more than 4GB of RAM.
Edit the /usr/bin/openjump startup script and comment out the JAVA_MAXMEM= on line 185.
The program crashes the first time you run it.
Just try again, after that it works ok.
- 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.
