Re: Attempting to find version of GDAL installed

We provide wheel distributions for only a small group of platform tags and Python versions. See I suspect your CI/CD server's pip program finds a compatible wheel, but your dev machine cannot. In that case, pip on your dev machine will take the source distribution, the .tar.gz file.

Thanks Sean!

Well, it appears that the libgdal shared library which fiona is linking resides in /usr/local/lib/python3.6/site-packages/fiona/.libs, rather than /usr/lib or /usr/local/lib - which leads me to believe that fiona has obtained its GDAL dependencies from PyPI. 

What I am struggling with, is that locally, on my dev machine, fiona does not seem to be getting GDAL dependencies from PyPI, where as on my CI/CD server, it is getting its dependencies and so the result of "pip install fiona" works. Do you have any idea why this may be the case?
