20060822: garp crash

Douglas,

One likely cause in would be the change in the data set naiming from
"eta" to "nam".
I mentioned in the release notes that the decoders and datatype.tbl were
set up
to refer to the data sets as "nam" now:
http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/gempak/GEMPAK/whats_new.html#5.9.3

The $GARPHOME/config/Garp_defaults file has a section:
# Widget defaults
model           : eta

I left the default model in Garp to be "eta" because the Garp FDF files
are located in subdirectory names by the modelkey. The $GEMTBL/config/datatype.tbl will
locate
the "eta" data set as a synonym for the NAM80:
ETA          $MODEL/nam                YYYYMMDDHH_nam211.gem

If your NAM80 files are not named as above, you will need to configure
your datatype.tbl accordingly. Alternatively, if you change the modelkey
in the
Garp_defaults file to "nam", then you should copy the "eta" FDF
directories for each of the plot types to directories named "nam".

Gembuds,

I recently installed GEMPAK5.9.3 ( I used the precompiled binaries and libraries ) on a machine running on FC2. Everything appears to working fine, except for garp. Garp starts up fine, and I can choose to display any observed data, e.g., metar, sat, etc. However, when I click on a button to display model data, garp crashes. It doesn't matter if it's model data in plan view, cross section, etc. Has anyone seen this before? If so, what fixed this problem?
Thanks for your help.

Doug
