[Gdal-dev] JP2 with MrSid

Jasper is slow and Kakadu is cost prohibitive.
I guess I'll have to revert back to an earlier release, which is unfortunate
since the latest MrSid code rendering rate of sid files is outstanding.
Should I consider converting all jp2's to a more useable format, or is this
just a temporary condition.

Actually MrSID JP2 support is currently commented out.  This was because it
was conflicting with the Kakadu JP2 library and I was trying to figure this
out before turning it back on.  I would suggest using either Jasper or
Kakadu to support your requirements at the moment.

I installed the latest GDAL and MrSid, and am having trouble getting the
command line utilities to work with JP2 files.

The file is from the dq2807.zip archive from

GDAL      --->  GDAL, released 2005/03/13

MRSID sdk --->  Geo_DSDK-

OS        --->  Linux 2.4.20-20.8

Thanks for any suggestions,
