This SHAPE file was generated in GRASS 6.3 and exported
with v.out.ogr:

http://mpa.itc.it/markus/tmp/oceans_ll.tgz (3891020 bytes)

It kills the entire Xserver when opening it in QGIS.
If possible, please take a look.

Works for me in both 0.8 and trunk, bad display however and very slow rendering. Compiling with debug I am.


Have libgdal 1.4.0 and no OTF.

#2 Updated by neteler-itc-it - about 16 years ago

I am using

- GDAL SVN HEAD from 03 March 2007

- QGIS SVN HEAD from 03 March 2007

- qt4-4.2.1-1mdv2007.1

- geos 2.2.3

- proj 4.5-CVS


#3 Updated by anonymous - about 16 years ago

from #gdal:

<FrankW> It appears that the WKT representation of feature 1645 is roughly 10MB - so very very large.
<FrankW> If QGIS is trying to tesselate the feature it is likely effectively hung on it.

#4 Updated by Magnus Homann about 16 years ago

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

Not much QGIS can do then to try drawing the feature. I suggest downgrading to gdal 1.4.0 and see what happens. For me it takes a minutes to open the layer, I guess it depends on the machine you have.

I'm closing this issue please re-open if it doesn't work with gdal 1.4.0.
