ogr2ogr segmentation fault on PostgreSQL output

Reported by: gfleming Owned by: warmerdam
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Utilities Version: 1.8.0

Cc: aboudreault


running ogr2ogr to convert a shapefile to PostGIS gives a segmentation fault with no stack trace.

I have tried mapinfo and gml output an they work fine.

It does this on two machines I have tried.

The exact same command was used routinely in production for over a year on 1.7 with no problem. No matter what options I try or how simple I make the command it gives a seg fault every time now.

Ubuntu 11.04 amd64

PostGIS 1.5 on PostgreSQL 8.4

ogrinfo --version GDAL 1.8.0, released 2011/01/12

Could you attach a shapefile that triggers this issue and give the exact command line you use ?

Could you also run it under gdb and display the stack trace when it crashes ? And/or running under Valgrind ?

Type "bt" (for backtrace) when gdb catches the SIGSEGV and paste the output, so we can have a usefull stacktrace :-) Where did you get your GDAL binary : did you compile it by yourself or got it from some repository ?

It's from the UbuntuGIS-unstable repository, here's the backtrace:

OK, now it reminds me of the problem I got a few months/years ago. You should report it to UbuntuGIS so that they can read and apply the patch in it to libepsilon

Not a GDAL bug in fact.

Since the epsilon package is not a part of UbuntuGIS, I'm going to disable that support. Perhaps, the epsilon package will be fixed in the next release.
