[fdo-users] FDO OSGeo.OGR can read DXF Files ??

You have not been very specific about what version of FDO you
are using.  The DXF driver in OGR is *relatively* recent, and even
if you are using the latest development version of FDO it may not
include a sufficiently recent GDAL/OGR version to include the DXF.

If you are using an older version of FDO then it is even more likely
it does not include DXF support.

Digging around I see FDO 3.6 does include DXF support:


I see that FDO 3.5 does *not* include DXF support.

While a bit risky and complicated, it should be possible to back port
newer GDAL/OGR's or even just the DXF driver into an older FDO.

Best regards,
