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

These will be fixed in our code repository now, and in 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.


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 line.

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.
