Description (last modified by Mateusz Łoskot)

I'm trying to use gdal_translate to produce GMT grids. The problems I'm having look similar to those described by ticket num #1487

The command

gdal_translate -b 1 -of GMT test.tif test.grd

produces the error

Input file size is 1864, 1471
netcdf: 5 is not a valid cdfid

I am using kubuntu (Hardy) and have used the debian package installer to manage all the relevant packages.

I have tried removing all of the netcdf, gdal and hdf packages and starting again (simply installing the gdal-bin package) to see if this will resolve any dependencies, but without success. After removing everything and using apt-get install gdal-bin I have the following packages installed

libgdal1-1.5.0                             1.5.1-3
gdal-bin                                   1.5.1-3
libnetcdf4                                 1:3.6.2-2
libhdf4g                                   4.1r4-21
libhdf5-serial-1.6.5-0                     1.6.5-5.2build1

Any suggestions as to ways to proceed, gratefully received.

Here what you can do :

  • Uninstall everything again, and make sure that libhdf4g is well uninstalled.
  • Install only libnetcdf4 from apt-get
  • Compile GDAL from source.
  • If someone hasn't yet done it, open a bug to the Debian bugzilla so that they try to fix their build of libhdf4g to be compatible with libnetcdf4. You can mention

This issue comes back regularly. Last time was a few days ago :

I close the ticket because, as you, I think that it's not a GDAL issue per se. If the above procedure doesn't solve your problem, please reopen.
