Script to install GDAL on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
# Install subversion
sudo apt-get -y install subversion
# Install g++
sudo apt-get -y install g++
# Install Hierarchical Data Format library
# NOTE: This library is not necessarily needed, but was required
# in order for this to compile against a clean Ubuntu 12.04 LTS system.
# I didn't need it on a clean EC2 Ubuntu 12.10 instance, so
# I'm commenting it out here. Uncomment if you run into dependency troubles.
# sudo apt-get -y install libhdf4-alt-dev
# Get trunk of gdal
svn checkout gdal
# Configure and make
cd gdal
sudo make install
# Modify .bashrc to export environment variable necessary for gdal to find library files
echo " " >> $HOME/.bashrc
echo "# GDAL environment variables" >> $HOME/.bashrc
echo "export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH" >> $HOME/.bashrc
source $HOME/.bashrc
