Hi Alan, all,
Thanks for providing those packages !
I still have a blocking issue with the gdal 1.9.1 package.
The OTB deb package cannot read any TIFF file without crashing .
The same issue can be seen on Debian unstable now (Francesco and Paolo
in cc will be interested).
This is a long time issue but we have never been so close to a solution.
On my ubuntu lucid machine, when adding
in the gdal debian/rules file, the problem goes away.
By the way, with the current gdal package, tiff and geotiff symbols are
You can see that in  around the 'Found GDAL' section.
This means that you can link to libgdal.so to resolve tiff or geotiff
I guess this is not expected (since the gdal package does not expose the
With our fix using the symbol renaming, things have never been so clean :
- no tiff/geotiff/jpeg symbols exposed
- our two testcases for linking with gdal and geotiff are clean :
-- Performing Test CHECK_GDALOPEN_SYMBOL
-- Performing Test CHECK_GDALOPEN_SYMBOL - Success
-- Performing Test CHECK_XTIFFOPEN_SYMBOL
-- Performing Test CHECK_XTIFFOPEN_SYMBOL - Success
Previously we had one of them failing on Debian, the other failing on
I expect them to be crystal clear now on all platforms.
No more tweaking of library link order necessary, etc...
This looks like the end of a several years old () nightmare for the
OTB devs ;)
So please consider integrating this small patch in the ubuntugis gdal
package and pushing a new package !
After that, it would (finally!) make sense for us to push orfeotoolbox
in ubuntugis as discussed a few month ago .
Paolo, would you make this test on Debian unstable and confirm ?
Frankie, your opinion on this would be much appreciated.
I'm already building a new version of the gdal package on our own ppa .
They should be published in a couple of minutes for anyone willing to test.
Thanks in advance,
