History

#1 Updated by Gavin Macaulay - about 14 years ago

I tried the windows release and it doesn't seem to install the srs.db database in a place where qgis can find it, which may lead to this problem. Perhaps Gary can comment...

#2 Updated by Gary Sherman about 14 years ago

  • Status changed from Open to In Progress

The srs.db is installed in the proper place, however the path to it is not being set right in code. This results in an attempt to open /resources/srs.db rather than the appropriate $PREFIX/resources/srs.db. Offending code appears to be in src/core/qgsapplication.cpp, starting at line 42. mPrefixPath is not being set properly (i.e. its blank) and this affects all parts of the code base that atempt to find resources.
