Hi there,

I'm trying to install postgis2.1 in conjunction with pg9.3 on a OpenSUSE13.2 

When issuing "CREATE EXTENSION postgis" I get the following error:

ERROR:  could not load library "/usr/lib/postgresql93/lib64/rtpostgis-2.1.so": 
/usr/lib64/libgdal.so.1: undefined symbol: GTIFFreeDefn

Looks like my libgdal1 (1.11.4) does not work with postgis2.1. in the 
documentation for postgis2.1 I only found the requirement that GDAL version 
1.9 or higher is recommended.

Which version of libgdal1 is really required? Does it matter that OpenSUSE 
uses libgdal1 and not libgdal?
