Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 241242
gdal from redhat repository does not support geotiff
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:05 EST
Description of problem:
Using FC6 for a mapping cartoweb platform, seems gdal from RPM redhat repository
does not support geotiff. It was not configured with --with-geotiff=internal.
In my humble opinion GeoTiff format is quite crucial for mapping application
using gdal. Therefore I suggest you to rebuild the gdal RPM with the geotiff
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Source RPM: gdal-1.4.1-1.fc6.src.rpm
Cartoweb for example needs GTiff enabled.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install mapserver
2. Install cartoweb
3. Create a cartoweb application with a geotiff layer
Cartoweb says : no GTiff format supported by gdal

I wish i could ...
Currently we hit some license issues, so i disable it.
I am still looking forward for clean up that issue.
Please read, for a beter understand of the issue:
Frank W. try to clean up all license issues, i oslo tryed to help him and
rewrote some piece of code.
Hmm pretty annoying.
i would like keep this bug open till license will be clarifyed.
I pinged EPSG people once again for license calrification.
Thanks for comment. I thought perhaps it was a question of licensing, now I'm
sure. I will read the txt file to understand better.
Please follow bz#249296, we now will have very soon geotiff support plus
EPSG data set for all gis packages.
Good news for Fedora GIS !
Hello Oliver !
Now it supports geotiff and geodetic datums :)
As with gdal-1.4.2 one from -devel, so feel free grab it.
