OSM2Go in the maemo repos no longer woks properly because the number of nodes on OSM has exceeded 2^31; the possibility of this is commented in the code.

The original author, TIll Harbaum said a couple of years ago he was moving onto other more popular projects and has just confirmed to me by email he has recently retired his N900, so has no real drive to come back to the project, which is fair enough. He is happy for others to take on the maintainer mantle.

Someone from the OSM community has fixed the problem and posted his version on github, but stated "maemo packagers wanted".

I would like to get a working version a. on my N900 (yes, I'm selfish!) and b. available in the repos (but not entirely so). Unfortunately I lack the experience to do either - my programming experience is limited some real-time stuff during my engineering degree back in the dieing days of the 20th century. So I'm wondering if anyone could either talk me through how to compile the github version for my own use (starting from scratch on a windows laptop or from a thumb-drive booted linux) or would be willing to package and push the fixed version for us all to share.

Version from github is now on extras-devel.

I tested it can be installed and started. I don't know how to check status of the bug you mentioned.

Just update from OSM and upload a change.
Did that and it works. Thanks, TomJ and AapoRantalainen!

Brilliant! Thanks Aapo; I was beginning to think I'd have to install build-essentials on my GSM-disadvantaged N900 and attempt to work out how to build it myself!

UPDATE: I've managed to upload a new node to OSM, so it appears to be working properly. I'll probably head along to the OSM pub meet in London tomorrow to give it a proper thrashing...

Hi!

I've released version 0.8.4 which fixes one of these bugs which is critical (map not shown when selecting a region for a new project), another bug is in my todo list.

I'm glad there's interest in osm2go and will try to keep it afloat.

It would be nice if you update the package once more.

Thanks!

Done.

Modifications:
1)
src/net_io.c
src/osm_api.c
-include <curl/types.h>

2)
data/osm2go.conf from older version

3)
configure from older version
(problem to run autoconf)

Thank you! May I get your contacts to ping you directly for packaging following releases? My mail is available on github.

Fixed.

Gotta investigate how it's used and why it was not in the repo if it's needed.

Could you send/post errors? Plain autoreconf worked for me on FreeBSD, Debian, for Scratchbox and Travis builds.

It is. However for that working Bing WMS server would be needed, but hosting it will likely be against Bing TOS so you probably won't find a public one. You can run your own with twms (http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/TWMS) though.
