So this morning I ran an automatic update on my lucid 10.04 comp, and noticed that a new gdal was being installed along with several other version updates for qgis. O oh, this is going to me trouble for my Mr Sid files I thought, and sure enough, upon opening up qgis post update I discovered that I was no longer able to load in Mr Sid raster files into qgis.
So I'm going back to the lizard tech site and presently downloading the SDK 8.0 ( Redhat Enterprise Linux 5 x86 gcc 4.1 ). Lets see if we can get it running this time. I'll also try and get it up and running on my 10.10 comp when I get to the office. Will keep you posted.
Alas, no success!
As I had previously tried back in January, I tried a similar build approach that was listed for the 7.0 SDK.
Still no luck.Code:jvc@CF1:~$ sudo gdal-mrsid-build $HOME/Raster_DSDK [sudo] password for jvc: grep: /home/jvc/Raster_DSDK/include/support/lt_base.h: No such file or directory Extracting GDAL/MrSID tarball Building GDAL/MrSID plugin checking for gcc... gcc checking for C compiler default output file name... a.out checking whether the C compiler works... yes checking whether we are cross compiling... no checking for suffix of executables... checking for suffix of object files... o checking whether we are using the GNU C compiler... yes checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes checking for gcc option to accept ISO C89... none needed checking for g++... g++ checking whether we are using the GNU C++ compiler... yes checking whether g++ accepts -g... yes checking for ranlib... ranlib checking for g++ -shared ... yes checking for gdal-config... /usr/bin/gdal-config using /usr/lib/gdalplugins/1.8 as GDAL shared library autoload directory checking for lt_base.h in /home/jvc/Raster_DSDK/include/support... not found. checking for lt_base.h in /home/jvc/Raster_DSDK/include... found MrSID DSDK version 7.x or newer. checking for MG3ImageWriter.h in /home/jvc/Raster_DSDK/include/mrsid_writers... no encoding support. checking for MrSID JPEG2000 support... configure: error: MrSID JPEG2000 support requested, but libltikdu.a not found. jvc@CF1:~$ sudo gdal-mrsid-build $HOME/Lidar_DSDK grep: /home/jvc/Lidar_DSDK/include/support/lt_base.h: No such file or directory grep: /home/jvc/Lidar_DSDK/include/lt_base.h: No such file or directory /home/jvc/Lidar_DSDK seems not containing an GeoExpress SDK 4.0+
I noticed in the readme files in the 8.0 SDK that it says
No specific installation is required to use the LiDAR SDK beyond
copying the SDK contents to your local machine.
After installing, we suggest building and running the example program
to assure correct installation and behaviour.
Is this true? Where exactly should we copy the contents to then?
As always, all help is greatly appreciated!
I've tried also using gdal 1.8.0 Ubuntu 11.04 and SDK 8.0, without success, any idea?
Here's how I compiled the MRSID plugin for gdal1.7 on ubuntu 10.10:
Follow step #2 from:
webcrawl this site to get the DSDK 7, unfortunately lizard techs 8.0 SDK does not work with gdal 1.7 (from what I read):
Once you get all the files run:
If you run into the dreadedCode:sudo gdal-mrsid-build <your local dir>/Geo_DSDK-126.96.36.1997.linux.x86-32.gcc41 #verify with gdalinfo --formats |grep -i sid
Code:checking for MrSID JPEG2000 support... configure: error: MrSID JPEG2000 support requested, but libltikdu.a not found.
It means you're missing Geo_DSDK-188.8.131.527.linux.x86-32.gcc41/3rd-party/lib/Release/liblt_kakadu.a
Note how libltikdu.a != libtl_kakadu.a, the configure script will take either. The Nasa site from above has libtl_kakadu.a and should work if you put in the right place.
Hi, Thanks for the info.
A quick question. When you say
Do you mean we have to manually go through and download every file and put into appropriate subfolders as per the folder structure on the website. Isn't there a quicker way to download all these files at once?webcrawl this site to get the DSDK 7, unfortunately lizard techs 8.0 SDK does not work with gdal 1.7 (from what I read):
Isn't it available for 11.04?, I followed that step two wich says:
But I got this:In a terminal, type:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libgdal-mrsid-src
sudo apt-get install gdal-bin
which means: "could not locate package libgdal-mrsid-src" or something like that.E: No se ha podido localizar el paquete libgdal-mrsid-src

BigBaka, it's been a while, but for the record, you can download the entire repository from the NASA site with:
Code:svn co http://worldwind31.arc.nasa.gov/svn/trunk/GDAL/GDAL-1.7.2/MrSID/linux/Geo_DSDK-184.108.40.2067.linux.x86-32.gcc41/
