Mapnik isn’t for beatniks…

So after mapping my local area on openstreetmap, I felt compelled to try and get mapnik into Fedora. Spent a good part of Sunday finding out why it wouldn’t build on PPC64 – this is because I’m thick and in the end it need a two line patch to stick the libs under /usr/lib64 as opposed to /usr/lib. Still, learnt a bit of python in the process so not a dead loss.

Job continues to be ace. I will however be very, very glad when I get my driving license back two weeks from now. 🙂
