Re: [gembud] Installing gempak on a RHEL7 system


I recently installed gempak from RPM on a 64 bit Centos 7 system, but I didn't 
go through installing the awips repo. Instead, I downloaded 
gempak-7.4.3-1.el7.centos_x86_64.rpm from

GEMPAK Source Code and Binaries - Unidata | 
GEMPAK Source Code and Binaries. GEMPAK is an analysis, display, and product 
generation package for meteorological data. It is used at National Centers for 
producing operational forecast and analysis products.

and installed directly from that file using yum as:

yum install gempak-7.4.3-1.el7.centos.x86_64.rpm

Hope this helps,

Subject: [gembud] Installing gempak on a RHEL7 system

Just tried following the instructions at to install gempak 
on an RHEL7 workstation. I'm getting "No package gempak available". In classic 
RH/yum nomenclature, this is a fairly unhelpful response, so I'm hoping someone 
else had looked at this before.
