[gembud] dcuair Decoder OR Installing from Source



I wrote a few weeks ago about having some problems with running a
Barnes Analysis on Upper Air Data. Every time we run OABSND, on upper air data only, we get a segmentation fault. I've looked through the
logs output by the decoder and haven't seen anything strange.
Moreover, we are able to plot Skew-T's and the like just fine.  We
installed GEMPAK5.11.1 in its binary form before reinstalling
everything on our system and never had a problem... strange.

As a solution...

Unidata suggested that we install GEMPAK from source instead of using binaries. However, I keep running into a snag during the make process -- I've tried using both the default FORTRAN and g77 compiler.

Here are some of the errors I get before it conks out. I'm kind of a rookie when it comes to this stuff so any help or suggestions would be great... Thanks and have a good weekend,
