Comments on OSGeo-live 9.5 alpha2 testing
|Reported by:||bakaniko||Owned by:|
There is some comment I made after testing OSGeo-live 9.5 alpha2. Everything I tried was working and major stuff was in french, so i happy with it. Here is just some feedback that might useful. It is mostly quickstarts , but i went a little forward on qgis and postgis.
thanks to kalxas suggesting posting it here.(comments in brackets are his)
Language choosing on start up -> Great stuff !
Full screen after logging: Perfect !
Updates: 66 packages, 328.3 Mo right after boot with osgeo-live-9.5alpha2-amd64.iso?
17 packages, 165 Mo with build 62-amd64-96cd3d3 ?
(we update most packages on each build, without kernel updates, so the older the build, the more updates it will ask for)
On virtualbox, shutdown stop at "Stopping early crypto disks", maybe an Ubuntu issue.
It Lacks a PostGIS Database with recommended extensions postgis, postgis_topology, fuzzystrmatch..
(postgis databases exist in the build, I am not sure about topology though)
-- pgrouting DB has postgis enabled, but not postgis_topology.
It think for educational purposes easier to have a model with the an explicit name and recommended extensions to use as a template. --
Working, little bug that i already have on an other installation of Postgre/PostGIS:
Get that message launching shp2pgsql via button:
src/common/menucmn.cpp(715): assert "IsAttached()" failed in SetInvokingWindow(): menus attached to menu bar can't have invoking window
There is one enter in Databases and one in Programmation ?
Works, import and export of shape files
2.12.1 version and in French: great ! Not problems so far
Why is it in Graphism and not in Geospatial ?
Why not make Freenode default irc server and #osgeo-live channel too ?
Seems working, why is it in Graphism?
Seems working, no english version ?
Launched but not installed ?
After Install in Virtualbox:
installation: No problems
QGIS started in English (it was in French in live session), but it is easy to change.
Not thing to had
It is just my opinion, don't take personally.
I'd rather have Xfce or mate than LXDE. I know it is lightweighted, i spend 2 years on #! (so with openbox) and i liked it. But LXDE, no i can't bare it.
For professional use, i think OpenOffice will be a better choice.
