Description James Hiebert 2012-07-20 18:59:12 UTC
Using sci-libs/gdal-1.9.1 _with_ the netcdf USE flag enabled, the gdal library fails to open or detect the format of any classic netcdf version 3 files.  When I try to run gdalinfo on a classic netcdf file I get the error:
ERROR 4: `/tmp/' not recognised as a supported file format.
Same error when trying to open the same file with the python gdal bindings.
I have built gdal-1.9.1 from upstrean subversion and upstream's gdalinfo opens the same files without problems (see Expected Results).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
james@basalt ~/code/svn/gdal-1.9.1/gdal $ file /tmp/ 
/tmp/ NetCDF Data Format data
james@basalt ~/code/svn/gdal-1.9.1/gdal $ which gdalinfo
james@basalt ~/code/svn/gdal-1.9.1/gdal $ gdalinfo /tmp/ 
ERROR 4: `/tmp/' not recognised as a supported file format.

gdalinfo failed - unable to open '/tmp/'.

Actual Results:  
gdalinfo failed to recognize the file

Expected Results:  
$ svn co gdal-1.9.1

(default configure and make which enables netcdf)

Anyone?  Anyone?
Comment 2 Justin Lecher (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-12-26 13:37:25 UTC
Is this fixed in version 1.9.2?
Comment 3 Aaron W. Swenson gentoo-dev 2013-06-24 23:36:56 UTC
Let us know if the issue persists in gdal-1.10.0-r1.
Comment 4 James Hiebert 2013-06-25 01:13:56 UTC
This appears to be resolved for both 1.9.2 and 1.10.0-r1.
