Just trying to install a local copy of the OSM db on a new machine.
Unfortunately planetosm-to-db.pl now requires "two bazillion f--king
Perl modules" (ackn. Chris Lightfoot) rather than being a
straight-out-the-box script. To get these you have to (I think) either
install Subversion and get them that way, or download them
file-by-file from the SVN web archive.
I can understand the need for Bit::Vector and the DBI stuff, but the
rest seems to be making it harder to use the OSM data.
Could I suggest either that:
a) we resurrect an older version, perhaps as planet-osm-to-db-simple.pl, or
b) the Geo::OSM stuff (and the weirdly named Utils::Debug) are
submitted to CPAN, for ease of installation?
I don't mean to knock the effort (mainly Joerg's, I think) but
planetosm-to-db.pl used to be the easiest way to get and use OSM data,
and I'm sad to see that lost.
