Troubleshooting: RoadNav Map Download Error

I had an error today trying to download maps for Arkansas.  I wish I could provide a fix, but all I can do at this point is raise awareness to the error.

map_error by you.

The error read:

Error reading http://geonames.usgs.gov/docs/stategaz/AL_DECI.zip (An error occurred during negotiation).

I did find a bug open on the issue:

http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1683731&group_id=119594&atid=684486

Testing the SVN checkout

svn co https://roadnav.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/roadnav roadnav

When I ran ./configure, I got an error message about wxWindows.  It said “checking for wxconfig… no”.  I found that I needed to install libwxgtk2.6-dev (apt-get install libwxgtk2.6-dev). I also installed the 2.8 version.  I don’t know which it used.

Here is how I compiled it — libroadnav first.

cd $HOME/bin/roadnav/libroadnav/trunck
./configure –prefix=$HOME/bin/roadnav
make
make install

Now just roadnav

cd $HOME/bin/roadnav/roadav/trunk
./configure –with-libroadnav=$HOME/bin/roadnav –prefix=$HOME/bin/roadnav
make
make install
