GDAL can't find the PROJ libary.

is proj installed fully & correctly?
do you have a file called "libproj.so"?


if you have something "close" but not the actual name, you may need to
make a symlink,
ln -s /usr/lib/libproj.so.0 /usr/local/lib/libproj.so

if you have

but it just doesn't work, check that "/usr/local/lib/" is listed in

If it isn't, add it to the end of that file and then run ldconfig as root.

good luck,
