It appears to be kind of a dead project.. but it ran on my Fedora Core 2 system, installed from binary, using the gtk2 linked version.
Seems like this is the best pure Linux mapping program I have found that actually uses vector graphics.
Sorry.. rastor based graphics in GPSDrive seems the wrong way to go..
Cool, I assume it looks so good because it is drawing through GTK which now uses Cairo to render graphics.
Humm.. still looks like everything is aliased.
It compiles against either QT3 or GTK2 I think (I downloaded the binary to look at functionality).
If it were updated to use QT4.1, all of that would be Anti-Alaised, and could have Alpha blended components.
The 2nd link posted looks good! Anybody tried that? The page says "not ready for the masses" which means to me "doesn't work".
Looks promising but unfortunately it's US-only at least for now.
Silverwolf 2 is dead.
