Running gdb explicity on this import produces the same backtrace info, with this extra bit at the very end:

Program received signal SIGABRT, Aborted.

Any ideas?

Hi Martin, I've uploaded the polygon shapefile which is causing the errors.

Hi Martin, I've uploaded the polygon shapefile which is causing the errors.

Hm, it seems to be platform-specific. I have imported the shapefile without problems (GNU/Linux, 32bit, gcc 4.1.3).


comment:4 by epatton, 13 years ago

It seems the problem is larger than just importing this shapefile. I tried exporting a different Grass vector from a different location to shapefile using v.out.ogr, then importing that shapefile back into its parent location. I get the same result, a buffer overflow.

Can anyone with a 64-bit system test importing shapefiles with

No problems on GNU/Linux 64 bit, gcc 4.1.2, gdal 1.5.2, grass64 and grass70. Maybe this is specific to your particular platform? Compile and install gdal anew?

From grass-dev ML:

same problem here:

Ubuntu 8.10:

ii  gdal-bin                                  1.5.2-4.1~intrepid
ii  libgdal1-1.5.0                            1.5.2-4.1~intrepid
ii  libgdal1-1.5.0-grass                      1.5.2-1
ii  libgdal1-dev                              1.5.2-4.1~intrepid

applyes for GRASS 6.3 (les-ejk ubuntu package) and 6.4 (fresh source compilation)

the problem seems to be in ubuntu gdal package

so, we have to dig in this direction

I'm using gdal-1.5.3, compiled from source; so Ubuntu packages can't be the problem in my case. I'm recompiling Grass and gdal and will report the results soon.

comment:8 by epatton, 13 years ago

I noticed the "OGRFeature16GetFieldAsString" error that we both had, and thought there might be a problem with the dbf file that was causing this error, so I tried opening it in Open Office, but that program chokes with an error "Unable to open file for reading". I then renamed the dbf to something else, and tried importing the shapefile via and it worked! I can view the vector fine; doesn't show anything out of the ordinary.

This is still disconcerting, as the attributes have not survived the import. It's not a big problem for the polygons I'm using in this case, as their only purpose is to be rasterized into masks later on, but still...and I can't understand why ooffice won't open the dbf; gnumeric doesn't have any problem opening it.

Resolution: worksforme
Status: newclosed

I've removed the gdal 1.5.2 version that shipped with Ubuntu 8.10 and compiled gdal 1.6.0 in its place. is working fine now, so I'm closing this bug.
