When I select a boundary box for tiles, they don't generate. But when I have the boundary box be the entire world, the tiles generate. When I look at what has been generated, it is a blank world except for the state that I am trying to generate tiles for. I have imported the state into the database, but I can't seem to get tiles to generate when I specify the boundary box. What can I do?

Can you give more backgroud information? What exactly are you trying to do? What program are you using to generate tiles? Have you followed some guides?

I am trying to get tiles generated for the southern part of California. I am using Mapnik to generate the tiles. I am following the mapnik guide on the osm wiki.

Please look for error messages mapnik produces. Perhaps this similar question can give you some hints:

If you get tiles, but all are empty, perhaps the extent bounds in inc/ is wrong.

Perhaps you have the coordinates in the wrong variables. It happened to me too. If you call a function similar to generate(bbox(x1,y1,x2,y2),zoomlvl, name). Make sure your x's and y's are given correct values.
