Bug report #16076

Updated by Johannes Kroeger over 1 year ago

Opening a Vector Geopackage in QGIS alters its file. Simply loading the file is enough, you do not even need to load any actual data (visibly to the user).



<pre>

$ wget http://www.geopackage.org/data/geonames_belgium.gpkg

2017-01-13 17:58:54 (1.28 MB/s) - ‘geonames_belgium.gpkg’ saved [11594752/11594752]



$ cp geonames_belgium.gpkg geonames_belgium.gpkg_original



$ md5sum geonames_belgium.gpkg*



4dacf68ae3a5f2c2fb55a35d062dc580 geonames_belgium.gpkg

4dacf68ae3a5f2c2fb55a35d062dc580 geonames_belgium.gpkg_original



$ ogrinfo -so geonames_belgium.gpkg

[email protected]:/mnt/earx/geodata$ qgis geonames_belgium.gpkg

Here the layer chooser dialog appeared on which I clicked Cancel and quit QGIS.



<pre>

$ md5sum geonames_belgium.gpkg*

QGIS changes only some stuff in the header:



<pre>

$ hexdump -C geonames_belgium.gpkg > geonames_belgium.gpkg.hex

$ hexdump -C geonames_belgium.gpkg_original > geonames_belgium.gpkg_original.hex

$ diff geonames_belgium.gpkg*.hex

I could not reproduce this bug with the Raster GPKG https://portal.opengeospatial.org/files/63156 but with any other Vector GPKG I tried.



Please ensure that merely opening a file does never alter it.
