Re: [ldm-users] NDISP Error Message

Sorry for the mis post, I did not know there was a separate GEMPAK list.  I'll 
be sure to note that next time.  But, this is a PC running Red Hat Enterprise 
Linux 5.7, in run level 3.  Also, from your suggestion regarding the -X option 
for X11 forwarding, I should not need to set the display in the localwxplot 
script?
