Thanks Mathieu for your help and willingness.
I followed your instructions, and now I have Qgis 1.6.0 with GDAL 1.7.3
on my system, with PCRaster support properly enabled.
However, I wanted to mention 2 issues that arose while I was installing
qgis and gdal:
1) When I tried to install qgis-devel-1.6.0_3.el5.elgis and
qgis-python-1.6.0_3.el5.elgis I got the following error message:
"Missing Dependency: proj = 4.7.0-1.el5.elgis is needed by package
Missing Dependency: proj = 4.7.0-1.el5.elgis is needed by package
and I end up not installing them
2) After installing the new version of qgis and gdal, I typed on the
$ gdalinfo --version
and I got:
GDAL 1.7.2, released 2010/04/23
do I need to restart the machine to be able to use gdal 1.7.3 on the
Linux user #454569 -- Ubuntu user #17469
"We would accomplish many more things
if we did not think of them as impossible."
