I have installed the QGIS 1.7 (installed 20.03.2011) with GDAL 1.8 which is announced to support SOSI import. After activating GDALtools 1.2.25 I exspected SOSI files to be in the list of vector formats that could be imported, but it does not appear in the list. If I try to import by choosin all files *.* and point on the Telemark.sos file I get the error message "Telemark.sos is not a valid or recognized data source"

Some updates on that issue...
GDAL still has to be build explicitly with SOSI support, which does not happen out-of-the-box. But recently the build process for GDAL (1.92 and later) with SOSI support advanced:
Source code for OpenFYBA can be downloaded from:
The OpenFYBA third party library was build successfully both on Linux and Windows (Win 7 with MS Visual C++ 2012). Once OpenFYBA is build GDAL can be compiled against it for SOSI support.
