Jeff,

It seems that it mixed geos3.1 and 3.2 ?

Xianoi: Yep, there's your problem right there. My suggestion is to remove the 3.2.0 geos lib and headers from /usr/local/lib and /usr/local/include and try again.

If I have to clean out all the old versions of basemap, _geoslib.so and libgeos, then rebuild again, What is the safe way to do so ? I am afraid that I may damage the system if I simplely apply "rm". Do you have some suggestion about the steps of deleting ?

Many thanks !!

Xiaoni: Is there no traceback? Can you run ldd on the _geoslib.so <http://_geoslib.so> that you are actually importing when the error occurs (presumably /usr/local/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/_geoslib.so)? That will tell you what version of the geos library you actually linked. I don't think I can be of much help here - all I can suggest is that you clean out all old versions of basemap, _geoslib.so and libgeos, then rebuild again. The fact that there are so may versions floating around increases the chance that you have a version mismatch somewhere.

Also check the build output and make sure there were no errors building _geoslib.so.

> Xianoi: You never said what the actual problem is with basemap. I have seen segfaults when there are two versions of geos installed (version 2 and version 3) and you pick up the header from one version and lib from the other version. I suggest setting the GEOS_DIR env var to /usr/local/lib and re-running the basemap install (python setup.py <http://setup.py> install), after deleting the existing build directory. Hopefully then it will grab both the header and lib for version 3.2.0 (which by the way is a pre-release, as yet untested with basemap).
