Re: Installling rgdal - gdal connection error


Let me make sure i'm 100% clear:

my call is:

install.packages("rgdal", configure.args = c("--with-gdal-config=/nfs/user08/bw4sz/Gdal/gdal-1.9.0/apps/gdal-config"),  

I haven't specifically called a .la location, that was the default once i linked to my gdal-config file. Are you saying that the appropriate gdal-config file is not under the apps folder? Or that i should link it outside of the call to install rgdal?

 I had anticipate a bin folder, but when i configured and made the tar, the only gdal-config file i could find was under the apps folder.

Thanks so much for your help,

The use of .la libtool helper file is not appropriate and deprecated (it is
in general too much libtool dependent and subject to problems).
I would suggest you link regularly the gdal file using the appropriate
gdal-config line.
