SEVERE: org.esa.s2tbx.dataio.gdal.activator.GDALDistributionInstaller

Hello all !

I’m trying to set up snappy to pre-process a large amount of Sentinel-1 data. I already did it on windows but i’m right now using Ubuntu.

I installed SNAP, updated it (SNAP 7.0.4) and created a new python environment version 3.6 to fit with snappy. Then I followed the tutorial :

I moved the snappy folder into my ‘site-packages’ of py36 and then I want to try if everything is working and I got this error :

If anyone has an idea of where to look to solve the issue that would be great !


The “Severe” message can be ignored until some gdal operation fails. Does the rest of the test:

from snappy import ProductIO
p = ProductIO.readProduct('snappy/testdata/MER_FRS_L1B_SUBSET.dim')

produce the list of band names?

This seems like a GDAL installation issue. The installation steps here shows that you need to set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable also during installation.

Hope it helps you.

Oh you are right, I still have the error message but I can get the list. I think the ‘SEVERE’ message was worst and I started to check my python and GDAL installation ahah… Well thank you for your quick answer :slight_smile:
