Dear all,

I'm new to the OSM community and currently I'm trying to install the Osmium
framework under ubuntu 11.10, but I'm facing some compilation errors. The
steps that I followed can be summarized as follows:
1. I basically first installed all the dependencies as suggested in the Osmium
Quick Start <http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Osmium/Quick_Start> webpage
2. I manually downloaded the zip file available from the Osmium's github
repository <https://github.com/joto/osmium> and unpacked locally under a
local directory, say: /media/projects/osm/  [OK]
3. Then, I called "make install" from the console and the include files
were installed [OK].
4. Next, I called "make test" and all the test passed by displaying "*** No
errors detected" in the console [OK].
5. Finally, being inside the "examples" subdirectory, I called "make" and a
compiler error message was displayed [NOT OK]:
$ make
g++ -g -Wall -Wextra -Wdisabled-optimization -pedantic -Wctor-dtor-privacy
-Wnon-virtual-dtor -Woverloaded-virtual -Wsign-promo -Wno-long-long
-I/usr/include/libxml2 -o osmium_convert osmium_convert.cpp -lexpat -lz
-lpthread -lprotobuf-lite -losmpbf -lxml2
In file included from ../include/osmium.hpp:26:0,
                 from osmium_convert.cpp:33:
../include/osmium/input/pbf.hpp:33:27: fatal error: osmpbf/osmpbf.h: No
such file or directory
compilation terminated.
make: *** [osmium_convert] Error 1

I'm not sure what I did wrong and therefore any feedback is happily
