How can you use the maps of openstreetmap without an internet connection???
I have 1) desktop amd64 (3200+), 1GB ram ubuntu 8.04 hundreds GB disk, 2) ASUS eee 901, ubuntu 8.04, GPS Holux M1000 (and good old Etrex). The asus is meant for places where there is no internet, even not through my Nokia E61 (which by the way works great with the M1000 after some hacking).
I have long standing experience programming math models and stats in pascal and fortran and some in python on a variety of platforms.
BUT BUT BUT I cannot figure out how to handle OpenStreetmap:(:(:(:(. It seems to me that “how to” documentation is either lacking
or is directed to people who already know how it all works.
I succeeded in getting gpsd, gpsdrive and tangoGPS working on both systems. I could download the entire world, the Netherlands and a 1x1 degree section around my town. But I cannot view the offline osm files. Gosmore fails on everything I try e.g. segmentation fault suggesting to reduce MAX_NODES. Where can I find how???,
Please, please help me on step by guidance for somebody who doesn’t know how it works, where is it, where is documentation on all the perl scripts and how to use the applications in svn.openstreetmap.org??? I noticed by lots og google that behind wiki.openstreetmap.org/index.php is much much more than the 8 items under “navigation”. How can I find out what there is more??? Only by googlechance???
My sincere apologies for being not bright enough to find out for myself and many thanks for guidance that can get me on track, first as a user and may be later as contributor.
