I'm trying to install gdal on my new computer in the anaconda environment using conda but having issues. All I've done so far is install Anaconda for python 3.6 and install gdal as described here + a few other libraries using both conda and pip.
Trouble is when I try to run from "osgeo import gdal" the iPython console in spyder I get this error, which I'm not smart enough to interpret on my own:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 1, in

Is there a problem with the conda install of gdal I'm using, or am I missing a piece?
Is there a different/easier way to start using gdal than this?
I've found that the dependency versions are a bit messed up. GDAL is relying on there being older versions of certain libraries, but newer ones are installed by default. I've managed to get it working by forcing older versions of some of the dependencies. A minimal working environment.yml looks like this:
gdalpackage is available on
condabut it basically never works on MacOS.
