Hi Frank

I installed GDAL1.2.6b5 with ECW-support on LINUX. However gdalinfo as 
well as gdal in a MapServer application hang when accessing ECW files.

gdalinfo produces the following output (before I have to CTRL-C):

Driver: ECW/ERMapper Compressed Wavelets

Coordinate System is:
Origin = (3405500.000000,5327500.000000)
Pixel Size = (0.50000000,-0.50000000)

The same image on my Windows system with precompiled FWTools caused no

Thanks for any help
