Q: 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
A: This happens, when GDAL isn't installed properly.
- 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 texteditor to the file and run ldconfig as root.
- Check if the rigth version of libgdal is installed. If there's a newer version, you can just create a symlink to new version (ln -s YOURINSTALLEDlibgdal.so.XXXX libgdal.so.1).
