[gdal-dev] Building GDAL with FileGDB support

> I am trying to build GDAL with FileGDB support on Ubuntu 10.4 using the recipe on the GDAL wiki.  I have installed GDAL 1.9.0 in /usr/local/ and have placed FileGDB_API from the ArcGIS resource center at /usr/local.  Configure --with-fgdb produces a config summary that shows 'yes' for 'with fgdb support'.  However, after 'make' and 'make install', the tests for ogrinfo fail - no FileGDB format is acknowledged.  I have put the FileGDB_API directory in the GDAL_DRIVER_PATH.
> Any ideas on what I may have done incorrectly would be much appreciated.

Hi Stuart
I think I have your same configuration, for me was enough to add
FileGDB_API/lib to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable, and fileGDB driver is
working perfectly.
Hope it helps
