I am trying to install r.inund.fluv on Linux to produce inundation maps but I am getting the below error. Note that I have a Fortran compiler.

GRASS 6.4.4 (newLocation):~ > g.extension r.inund.fluv

  • Thank jejune, I couldn't find grass-dev but I am new to GRASS and not sure if I was looking in the right place. Is there a link to the grass-dev page? I am looking to test it on Windows first and the Linux (centos). I am using grass 6.4. Thanks

since I'm from the debian/ubuntu universe it is called differently at centos/rhel...

have a look at http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Enterprise_Linux_GIS#How_to_enable_the_ELGIS6_repository

at centos it is called grass-devel-* (see http://elgis.argeo.org/repos/6/elgis/x86_64/)

remark: 6.4 is the old stable branch. I recommend 7.0 -> much more fun.

  • Hello, We have installed ‘grass-devel’ and all the dependencies. However it does not create or install an “include/Make” directory in /usr/lib64/grass-6.4.4/. Is there a package that provides that because it would appear as though those make files come from some place else. We are still getting the same error. Any thoughts or suggestions?
