Hi all,
we just finished to build an extra package for some QGIS plugins (CadTools, PyArchInit and Vterrain). The package has a lot of dependencies, due to the software it needs to install (in particular Virtual Terrain Project) in order to run the python scripts. If someone wants to test it, here is the link. The dependencies are also packaged and can be downloaded in a zipped file here. They will be automatically satisfied just when the packages will be inserted in ArcheOS official repositories, so (by now) the right sequence to install them is: 
  1. squish
  2. quickgrid
  3. mini
  4. proj
  5. gdal
  6. vtp

 Be careful, the package is still experimental and it is possible that it does not work properly. It is released under the GNU General Public License (read carefully the disclaimer of warranty, chapter 15). It has been tested on a Virtual Machine with ArcheOS Caesar, as you see in the image below.



If you want yo try it, and your ArcheOS Caesar version is old, just remember to add in the repositories of GFOSS, in order to install the package QGIS 1.7 (which is now in the official ArcheOS Caesar release). Here are the specifications:

URl: http://debian.gfoss.it/
Distribution: squeeze
Section(s): main

If you want to send your feedback, just post a comment in this post, or use the official ArcheOS ML (it or en).
