Re: [gembud] GEMAPAK 10.5.4 under ubuntu Linux


You error shown is: "cannot find -lXmu"

If you have the Xmu libraries on your system, then try uncommenting the line for shareable Motif libraries in the Makinc file and comment out the static entry. The libXm.a has dependencies on libXmu but the static
link may be making it difficult to resolve the dependencies in the
correct order.

After a number of tries with gfortran I finally got most of GEMPAK to
compile from source using g77 instead. The only apps that failed to
compile are the following:

make[5]: *** [nalarm] Error 1
make[5]: *** [ncolor] Error 1
make[5]: *** [nfax] Error 1
make[5]: *** [nmap2] Error 1
make[5]: *** [nsharp] Error 1
make[5]: *** [ntl] Error 1
make[5]: *** [ntrans] Error 1
make[5]: *** [nwx] Error 1
make[3]: *** [nmap_kiosk] Error 1
make[2]: *** [linux/garp] Error 1

The problem seems to be related to the location of libXm.a and files
that are expected to be located in /usr/X11R6/lib/. These are instead in
/usr/lib/. First I tried symbolically linking to the existing files but
that drew a complaint from the compiler that there were too many links.
I tried copying over the files to /usr/X11R6/lib/ but that didn't work
either. Finally, I searched the GEMBUD lists and found a mod to
Makeinc.linux_g77 that describes where the MOFTIFLIBS are in more recent
Linux distros. That just gets me the following error when compiling
ncolor (for example):

g77 -fno-second-underscore -I/home/gempak/GEMPAK5.10.4/gempak/include
-I/home/gempak/GEMPAK5.10.4/os/linux/include -O    -o ncolor ncolor.o\
/home/gempak/GEMPAK5.10.4/os/linux/lib/gemlib.a \
                -L/usr/lib /usr/lib/libXm.a -lXm -lXmu -lSM -lICE -lXp
-lXext -L/usr/lib -lXt -lX11 -lm
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lXmu
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [ncolor] Error 1

I wonder if anyone else has run into this problem and if you know of an
easy fix?

Thanks for reading this.
