Re: [gembud] GEMPAK on CentOS 7

I just did build ldm-6.12.4 on the same CentOS 7 machine - had to install a few prerequisites since I had started with a minimal install (pax and libxml2-devel weren't there yet) but after that built without any problems, that I can tell.

I'm not doing much with it, just requesting some grib files from a local ldm server and saving them as grib files, but it does seem to work.

One thing - and I have seen this on CentOS 6 machines as well - the modifications to the /etc/rsyslog.conf only partially work.

The line for the ldm log at the end works fine:
local0.*        /usr/local/ldm/var/logs/ldmd.log

But the combination of trying to eliminate ldm messages from /var/log/messages

*.info;mail.none;authpriv.none;cron.none /var/log/messages
local0.none    /var/log/messages

does not work as expected. Messages are still logged to /var/log/messages in this configuration. I had to add the local0.none to the first line so all appear on the same line, and then it works correctly so that ldm messages are not logged to /var/log/messages.

*.info;mail.none;authpriv.none;cron.none;local0.none /var/log/messages
#local0.none    /var/log/messages\

Pete,

Did you also build the LDM on CentOS 7?  If so what was your experience?

    Steve,

    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.

            Hi,

            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

        cheers,
