I have successfully set up an Ubuntu 10.04 LTS osm server, well at least I have for a very small dataset that i imported of the eastern UK.
But every time I acquire a larger dataset ( various planet.osm.bz2 & texas sized datasets ) the import fails. I cannot even uncompress the bz2 files.
I dl’ed files from ftp://ftp.spline.de/pub/openstreetmap
I tried bittorrent too.
When I get a bz2 file the following command always fails
md5sum -c planet-110504.osm.bz2.md5
ever had a look at http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Planet.osm ?
There are other sources for the raw data …
Or contact the spline.de admins to see how they generate their md5:
thank you - are there instructions for checking the md5 for the files on planet.openstreetmap.org ?
Well I grabbed planet-110810.osm.bz2 from planet.openstreetmap.org
but i still cannot extract the osm file from bz2 or get an md5sum…
$ md5sum -c planet-110810.osm.bz2.md5
md5sum: WARNING: 1 of 1 computed checksum did NOT match
it seems im doing something wrong procedurally to get a corrupt file every time.
Try the command ‘wget’ with the http:// protocol to retrieve the planet file. I always worked on my side.
