thank you for the welcome! Great to be using openSUSE too!
Unfortunately that does not seem to be the solution, I already had it installed and when I ran the command to re-install it I had the message ‘No update candidate for ‘gdal-devel-3.6.2-1.4.x86_64’. The highest available version is already installed.’
I’m assuming it’s an issue not with the R package but with the ‘upstream’ gdal package?
Hi thanks, not a local build as I don’t do that. Anyway, going through checking what I had installed that might be vaguely related, I hadn’t installed proj-devel and now I have, that has done the trick. Don’t know why at the moment but will read around it. Thank you for your replies.
