We recently downloaded the newest version of GEMPAK and GARP onto our
new Linux box. GEMPAK seems to be working fine. Most elements of GARP
are working just fine, but I am having a few hiccups that I cannot seem
to fix. I have compared the Gemenviron and Garp_defaults files from
our old and new system, and do not see any differences. Here are the
two most frustrating problems:
1. When I try to plot the NAM using Model Plan Projection, I am allowed
to select the dates, times and variables that I want. When I then
click "Display", GARP crashes. If I then restart GARP and first
select GFS (without plotting), then select NAM....I have a different
set of "general" scalar variables which plot up just fine without
crashing! Is there a magic file that I need to check on that tells
each model which fdf's to use?
2. When I try to plot "surface observational data", GARP crashes
immediately. I can go to "NWX" and see the listing of the same
data just fine!
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
