Re: [gembud] Greetings

So, I've got

OS X 10.5.7 on an Intel iMac.

Apple Software Developer's Kit : Xcode 3.1.3 and the version before that.

GEMPAK 5.11.4 source package

g77 binaries downloaded from, which was built from gcc 3.4.0, and installed in /usr/local/.

openmotif3, openmotif3-bin, and openmotif3-shlibs from Fink and installed in /sw (which is the default fink install tree)

And Gempak build fails. Thinking maybe need to use the same version of gcc as the g77 was built with, discovered that gcc 3.4.x won't build on Mac Intel Leopard. This according to discussion on Mac Ports where others found gcc 3.4.x failed to build on Leopard and no one is willing to fix it.

So, did you say you had success building Gempak 5.11.4 on intel Leopard, or were still working on it?

I installed g77 on my mac today. It installed in /usr/local/bin. So, I added that to my $PATH variable so that if I do a "which g77" it shows up. Then I changed the CONFIG>Makeinc.darwin files at the top. It references some "/sw" directory, but I do not have it, so I commented them out and added /usr/bin/g77 and /usr/bin/...

OPSYS = Darwin

# Using FINK's gcc and g77
#CC = /sw/bin/gcc-4
#FC = /sw/bin/g77
#Ryan Edit
CC = /usr/bin/gcc-4.0
FC = /usr/bin/g77

Now, the error I see over and over again is "Xm/XmAll.h", no such file or directory. I do not have a /usr/X11R6/include/Xm directory, so I'm trying to find out what it is and install it.

Trying to do same here ... as I can get to it.
Unidata had pointed out to me before that the compile has to be done using the old g77 fortran compiler, not the current GNU supported gfortran. One of the Darwin config files I noticed mentioned getting it from fink. Well, my recent experience with installing fink and then looking for g77 failed to find it. So I'll have to get it from some archive somewhere. Let me know if you can find it.

Hello, just signed up and test test test.

While I'm at it, I'll state that I"m pulling my hair out trying to get GEMPAK installed right on my new mini mac. I try compiling it, but a few minutes into the make it stops with errors. It's an Intel based mac so the binary does not work.

I have a make file that I sent to unidata, waiting to see what they think.
