I'm running a Sabayon GNU/Linux (based on Gentoo) at my home desktop system and I want to install Quantum-GIS.
I'm currently using the qgis-1.7.0-package from the repositories. But this is somehow very minimal. It does not support downloading plugins (
Plugins > Fetch Python Plugins disabled: I think this is to avoid security risks.) and it doesn't seem to be connected with GRASS in any way (at least in any visible way).
The official download guide is not very helpful as it only describes ways to install qgis in major linux distributions (Ubuntu, Debian, etc...). Anyways, this guide suggests to look out for packages like
qgis-plugin-grass. This seems to be what I am looking for, but it is not included in Sabayon/Gentoo-repositories. (This seems to be a major issue with any non-Ubuntu/non-Debian Linux-distribution.)
My question is, how to install Quantum-GIS with full python-plugin-support und full GRASS-plugin-integration from source, where to get required source code for everything and how to compile it correctly?
