Hi Emilio,

Do you have many versions of Python installed ? Are you sure your ./configure is looking for the one where the GDAL Pygton binding is installed ?

Objet : [postgis-devel] Error: GDAL Python bindings required


I'm trying to compile Postgis Raster 2.0 in a Red Hat Linux Enterprise 6 but I get the following error when I execute ./configure --with-raster:

checking for GDAL Python bindings... not found
configure: error: GDAL Python bindings required by raster2pgsql.py loader

When I installed GDAL I executed ./configure --with-python and I got the following lines:

checking for python bindings... checking for python... python
checking for location of Python Makefiles... found
checking where to install Python modules... /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages
checking for python setuptools... found
SWIG Bindings: python

If I execute Python from a console and import GDAL I get:

>>> from osgeo import gdal
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/GDAL-1.8.0-py2.6-linux-i686.egg/osgeo/__init__.py", line 21, in <module>
    _gdal = swig_import_helper()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/GDAL-1.8.0-py2.6-linux-i686.egg/osgeo/__init__.py", line 17, in swig_import_helper
    _mod = imp.load_module('_gdal', fp, pathname, description)
ImportError: libgdal.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

What am I doing wrong?

I have numPy installed. I attach the the gdal and the postgis configure.

Best regards.
