Re: [gembud] Gempak-7.4.5.deb installation

Hi all,

I ran into the same issue and then some...

Traditionally I've always built GEMPAK from source, but figured I'd try the
.deb file this time.  After deploying it however, like Paul I didn't have
most of the executables.  Some of the decoders got built, maybe one or two
other things, but no gd, gp or most other programs.  So I tried building
from source, but that didn't work either...

When building from source, it looked like it failed at making netCDF.  I'm
writing this from home so I don't have any log files on me at the moment,
but it appeared as though it made HDF5 okay, but the netCDF build couldn't
find hdf5.h and failed.  Without netCDF, those other programs failed as
well.  The strange part was hdf5.h seemed like it existed in the right
place, so I'm not sure what happened.  This was for both 7.4.3 and 7.4.5 on
Ubuntu 18.04.1, I was going to try on another machine before writing in
about it in case it was something local, but Paul described the same thing
so maybe it's not just me.

Hope this provides some clues.  If anyone wants more info, let me know and
I can include make & configure logs when I get in the office on Monday.
