Question

I got an error message like this one:

error while loading shared libraries: libgdal.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Answer

This happens, when GDAL isn't installed properly. Possible solutions:

  • Check if GDAL is installed (locate gdal). If not, install GDAL.
  • Check if the directory which contains your libgdal is listed in your /etc/ld.so.config. If not, add the directory with a text editor to the file and run ldconfig as root.
  • Check if the right version of libgdal is installed. If there's a newer version, you can just create a symbolic link to the new version, e.g.
ln -s YOURINSTALLEDlibgdal.so.XXXX libgdal.so.1
