eh, this isn't exactly what i am looking for.
my (windows)friends are using MrSID GeoViewer to open .sid files (homepage: http://www.lizardtech.com/solutions/...d_overview.php),
so i was wondering if there's something for linux to handle this (kind of) .sid

you may find something here

http://linuxshop.ru/linuxbegin/win-l.../table.shtml#9

if the software is proprietary, you may be out of luck.

<edit>found this reading some pages at the link you provided.

http://www.lizardtech.com/solutions/...cloverview.php

it claims multiplatform support including linux. have a good look around that site. you may find what your looking for.</edit>

ok, there is one program to convert that .sid to .jpg (.bmp ...), but here goes another problem.
as you know, opening a 400mb .jpg is not a good idea, so now i need some program to cut
this huge .jpg (lets say 100000x100000 pix :>) to smaller pieces (lets say 500x500 pix).
any ideas?

i'd try opening it, then cropping off pieces and saving them, until you get it down to a managable size.

I don't use gimp, but I noticed you can run it without the GUI. man gimp told me you can supply a batch file on the command line consisting of "a script that can be executed by one of the Gimp scripting extensions". I would have to imagine croping an image would be supported in one of them. What extensions are available and how to script in them... uhhh... I dunno that one. Sorry
