Before asking here or on the <debian-user> mailing list, you should read the Installation Guide,
or if you already have Debian installed, the Debian Reference.
Also take the time to read:
Linux is NOT Windows :
What we expect you have already Done. :

QGIS and GDAL SlackBuilds, again

Posted 08-03-2010 at 07:04 AM by 55020

Quantum GIS (QGIS) has a new version 1.5.0, and so I've now submitted a revised SlackBuild to It should show up some time in the next week or two.

Note that there is a new dependency. You need to install QWT (yes, SBo has a SlackBuild for that) before building the new version of QGIS. Well, you don't absolutely have to have QWT, but if you don't have QWT there will be reduced functionality in QGIS - for example, the new Live GPS Tracking will be missing.
