Hi Mathieu/Ralf

One last issue:

Ralf has mailed two versions:

1. gdal with image-io extension for Fedora12/EL6 and above
2. gdal with image-io extension for EL5

Unfortunately, the spec file which Mathieu using for EL5 doesn't have
the proper image-io support because it is using the normal *.jni.so*
from swig/java/.libs/*.so* (Though the jar files are proper)

Look at the following lines from the spec file

# copy JNI libraries and links, non versioned link needed by JNI
cp -pvl swig/java/.libs/*.so*  \

This has to be like following for the image-io support

cp -pvl swig-imageio-ext/java/.libs/*.so*  \

As we discussed earlier, in image-io scenario there are two sets of
*jni.so* created, from swig and swig-imageio-ext. The only call which
we need to take here is, which set of libraries should be included in
the main distribution, i mean in the gdal-java package.

1. The jni libraries with image-io support in gdal-java package and
the normal ones are in a different package on ELGIS repo
2. The native jnis in gdal-java package and the image-io ones are on ELGIS repo.

This is the call which we need to take between us, then we can create
a common final spec (anyway working on it) which can be used for
EL5/EL6/F12 and above.
