I have installed gdal using macports, and this is the result:
$ gdalinfo --version
GDAL 1.6.2, released 2009/07/31
GeoServer is based on ImageI/O-Ext which requires a specific GDAL
Actually, the stable version uses a patched GDAL 1.4.5 version.
AVVERTENZA: Native library load failed.java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: no
gdaljni in java.library.path
It seems that some gdal jar is missing, but which one?
The gdal jars are properly on place but you are missing the proper native libs version as reported by this message: Native library load failed.java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: no gdaljni in java.library.path
How can I get an updated version? I
tried to compile the imageio-ext from the sources taken by svn, but I don't
understand where the created file are placed (I found
but again, not my version)
It is not necessary to build the imageio-ext source code and jar bindings because they are still created to work against GDAL 1.4.5* (The 1.7.2 version you are seeing is for the imageio-ext-trunk whilst GeoServer is actually based on imageio-ext-1.0.x branch).
I think the UDIG guys did some work in building the GDAL 1.4.5 native libs for Mac in order to support some ImageIO-Ext plugins. I will suggest to ask for help on their mailing list. I have CCed the list on this reply.
Hope this helps. Let us know. Regards, Daniele
In the GeoServer status page I have:
Native JAI true
Native JAI ImageIO false
I know that the Native JAI ImageIO for MacOSX is not available yet, but I
don't care if I have some native implementation or not, right now I just
want it working... I tried downloading the linux version as suggested in the
pdf guide, copying it somewhere (I don't remember the directory, at the
moment) but I still have that problem...
