I wish Unidata would state a reason why they no longer produce GEMPAK
binaries, but regardless, we are left with all this compiling fun.
Looking at your Centos Errors, netcdf is not building for reasons I have
yet to figure out (appears it requires a lot of tetex stuff to build
docs). I ended up hacking in netcdf 4.1 to help it to build cleaner with
I sure wish Unidata would support public source code trees and revision
systems of GEMPAK, so the community could actively help develop it.
Unfortunately, Unidata doesn't develop code in an open manner. We have to
wait for it to "come from on high", a.k.a the 13th floor of the Unidata
Anyway, I know others on this list are producing RPMs, so hopefully
they'll have something to share with you. My RPM foo is not strong enough
to provide binaries for RHEL and RHEL clones yet.
I ended up installing: tetex-dvips , openmotif-devel, texinfo, tetex and
got it to work, I think.

Ok, I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here. I am using a fresh install

I've had problems compiling on Gentoo but that's due to the nature of the
beast, my CentOS systems have never had these problems. Prior to the issue that
was just patched, I have had very little problems compiling, and even then
everything compiled, and worked except for the inability to read data. Now
everything is completely broke and I'm completely confused as to what has
happened. Maybe it is as simple as reverting to an older version of CentOS.
If this is the case, what version do you guys use?
