 gpsdrive for Debian
+Using gpsdrive with mapnik
+* Install osm2pgsql and postgresql-8.2-postgis if not already done.
+    aptitude install osm2pgsql postgresql-8.2-postgis
+* Download a OpenStreetmap planet file from,
+    wget
+* Set up postgresql:
+    sudo -u postgres createuser -Upostgres -S -D -R `whoami`
+    sudo -u postgres createdb -Upostgres -EUNICODE gis
+    echo GRANT ALL ON SCHEMA PUBLIC TO `whoami` | sudo -u postgres psql 
-Upostgres gis
+    sudo -u postgres createlang -Upostgres plpgsql gis
+    sudo -u postgres psql gis < /usr/share/postgresql-8.2-postgis/lwpostgis.sql
+    echo GRANT ALL ON geometry_columns TO `whoami` | sudo -u postgres psql 
-Upostgres gis
+    echo GRANT ALL ON spatial_ref_sys  TO `whoami` | sudo -u postgres psql 
-Upostgres gis
+* Import planet.osm (this may take a long time).
+    osm2pgsql -v planet-latest.osm.bz2
+* Gpsdrive should now be usable with mapnik. Simply enable the mapnik checkbox 
in the 
+  gpsdrive sidebar menu.
+* For world boundaries (e.g. not just street data) please do the following:
+    wget
+    sudo tar xjvf  world_boundaries.tar.bz2 -C /usr/share/gpsdrive/mapnik
+If you use a different database setup or path for the world boundaries you may 
+need to edit ~/.gpsdrive/osm.xml to reflect your changes.
+Replace `whoami` in above commands with your username if you create the 
+with a different account.
