please upgrade OTB-bin and related package from 6.4 to 6.6

Asked by John Zhou on 2018-05-07

6.6 fixed quite a few bugs that were discovered after 6.4. Please update the package so that we can use the apt-get to manage Orfeo Tool Box installation.

Thanks,
John

I suggest you report a bug. If the bug and security fixes are significant then the package will be updated sooner

What is the output of:

lsb_release -a; uname -a

Thanks

Thanks for the quick response. Here it is:

Only has 6.4.... not 6.6

Where is 6.6 available from?

What is the output of:

gcc --version

Thanks

It will then install.

yes, I was able to install manually. I am wondering whether you can update the package. Perhaps, I should report this as a bug to get the 6.6 in the package.

Thanks,

Your bug report may get the package updated sooner
