Re: [gembud] GEMPAK on CentOS 7


I built GEMPAK 7.1.0 on CentOS 7 64 bit and from what I remember, there were no issues, compiled out of the box. Which kind of surprised me, because there are a LOT of changes between CentOS 6.x and CentOS 7.

I did have to add in values for GARPHOME and GARP_PATH to the Gemenviron file to get garp to run, but as far as I can tell it's running fine.

I'm curious if anyone here has built GEMPAK from source on CentOS 7. Are there any issues to be aware of? We have a new machine and are debating which CentOS to put on it.

i have one gempak installation on centos 6.5 because that's what is stated for awips II edex / cave... i have found over the years that for GEMPAK / ldm only, debian works the best for me, but that's just personal preference.. since raytheon / unidata are sticking with centos for awips II, i gave it a shot.. if you double check you prerequisites, and check your logs for errors during compile (dev versions is what I often miss on a fresh box), you'll be fine
