Bug Description

There is a problem building gdal that creates a conflict between the hdf and netcdf drivers. Please take a look at http://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/wiki/HDF .
If the package is not built correctly, gdal gets a core dump when opening netcdf files.

I have actually run into this problem and it manifests itself in Hardy with the gdal libs and -bin installed (1.4.4). I try to open or analyse ANY netcdf file and it gives me a segmentation fault, see attached .nc file which causes netcdf to segfault.

Downloading the gdal 1.4.4 source tarball and building it with (./configure; make) gives me an apps/gdalinfo binary which correctly reports the metadata of the file.

So this is a build problem which should really be fixed not only for Intrepid but also for Hardy itself - after all it's supposed to be a STABLE release. No need to upgrade any packages or mess with any dependencies - just please build the package correctly.

I discovered the exact same problem as gmayer. that is,

gdal 1.4.4 as packaged by Ubuntu Hardy 8.04LTS gives a segmentation fault upon attempting to use netcdf files.

Since i am not a Linux expert I dont know how to fix this independently - I hope this is fixed in an update soon.

Yes. Reproducible.
Setting it to confirmed. If no one is interested in taking it up I shall look into this sometime next week.

Hi,

this problem is not yet solved. typically i dont update to new releases very often because things just keep breaking and i am not expert enough in Linux to fix them well. so when i find a release that mostly works for me, i like to stay with it.

when i do update i will certainly let you know, since i use the gdal library a lot. its really quite important to get this bug fixed - at least for scientific geospatial needs...

cheers,
