GDAL/Python/Vista crashes with ReadAsArray(), ReadRaster()

Reported by: nono Owned by: hobu
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: PythonBindings Version: 1.6.1
Severity: normal Keywords:



I installed GDAL with Python bindings, and Python crashed wheh calling reading functions such as ReadAsArray?(), ReadRaster?().

I work on Windows Vista 32 bits with Python 2.6.2. I installed the GDAL Windows Binaries, I accordingly updated the PATH and created the GDAL_DATA environment variables, and I used the Windows installer GDAL-1.6.1.win32-py2.6.exe to set up Python bindings.

I can open datasets, read the projection, get a band, get the min-max values, etc. But, when I try to read the values with, e.g., band.ReadAsArray?() or band.ReadRaster?(), Python crashes.

Here is an example of code that crashes:

import gdal
from gdalconst import *

filename = ...
dataset = gdal.Open( filename, GA_ReadOnly )
band = dataset.GetRasterBand(1)

print 'Band Type=',gdal.GetDataTypeName(band.DataType)
min = band.GetMinimum()
max = band.GetMaximum()

# no problem until here

array = band.ReadAsArray(0,0,1,1)
# and there Python crashes!

PS: on my OSGeo4W installation (which includes Python 2.5.2 and GDAL 1.5), the above script works perfectly.

I don't know if OSGeo4W installs some required dependency, or if this is a version-related bug (since my own installation is Python 2.6.2 and GDAL 1.6)...

Closing. Too old versions...
