#6501 closed defect (fixed)

PROJSO variable mingw creates libproj-9.dll

Reported by: rashadkm Owned by: warmerdam
Priority: normal Milestone: 2.2.0
Component: default Version: svn-trunk
Severity: normal Keywords:


when cross building gdal with proj for mingw. I have dll for libproj but there is crash because of dll name check done in GDAL.

one of my colleague pointed out that gdal checks for only libproj-0.dll during runtime (gdal/ogr/ogrct.cpp)

So either I must use PROJSO or create libproj-0.dll. Maintaining env var everywhere seems a bad idea.

Is there anyway GDAL could pickup correct dll name during configure for windows platform? wheather it be libproj-0 or libproj-9

With the dlopen() mechanism it is hard to guess the right shared object name. A better solution might be to ./configure --with-static-proj4=.... instead to have a linking done at build time (contrary to what the name of the switch might suggest, it actually can link against the shared library)

trunk r34206 "OGRCT: upgrade LIBNAME of mingw and cygwin to libproj-9.dll and cygproj-9.dll to be uptodate with proj 4.9.X (recommended method is using ./configure --with-static-proj4 instead) (#6501)"
