Updating a libgdal-* Package
The libgdal-* packages (libgdal-grass for example) are format in the gdal source. This tutorial will explain how to get the source from gdal's source.
- Get the gdal's sources from http://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/wiki/DownloadSource and extract them and
cd gdal-1.9.2 ./configure cd frmts/grass #using gdal-grass for this example make distThere should be .tar.gz in the folder, this is your source. Rename it with the proper .orig.tar.gz name for the package (libgdal-grass.orig.tar.gz) and put it where you are building your package.
- Debian uses a different process:
gbp clone git://anonscm.debian.org/pkg-grass/gdal.git cd gdal quilt push -a make -f debian/rules gdal-grassThe tarball will be available in ../libgdal-grass-<version>.tar.gz
You can now proceed how you would update a package normally.
