Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I tried following the steps on http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Nominatim/Installation after installing all prerequisits:

git clone git://github.com/twain47/Nominatim.git

Compile the postgresql module:

cd module

Compile the Nominatim tool:

cd nominatim

It seemed OK for all the steps until the last make that showed many messages including:

svnversion: command not found ...

What's the problem?

It seems that you do not have the command 'svnversion' on your system. You can install the package subversion to get it.

I have added git and subversion to the requirements in the installation guide.

Many thanks, Gnonthgol! I have got subversion installed. Now I still have one problem:

"geos-config: command not found"

Does this mean another package missing?

Yes, you are missing the 'libgeos-dev' package.

You can search for files in all packages at packages.ubuntu.com to find the package that includes the missing file or command.
