Unix Port Installation Guide

Installation should be straightforward if you follow the requirements shown for each package. But it may be a little confusing since only direct requirements are listed. This guide lists all required and optional packages, and the order that they should be installed. It focuses on what is needed for GRASS, MapServer and Qgis. Because of the inter-dependent complexity of optional Python components, it assumes Python features are desired where available (that is, Python is a requirement in this guide).

Notes

  • [1] from the optional GRASS.
  • [2] R extensions all require R to be installed.
  • [3] Postgres/PostGIS and MySQL client support is built into packages. The Postgres/PostGIS and/or MySQL packages are only needed if a local Postgres/PostGIS or MySQL server is required.
