Re: [gembud] Gempak-7.4.5.deb installation

The configuration process for netCDF, as set in $NAWIPS/extlibs/netCDF/Makefile 
has removed âdisable-netcdf4 which existed in earlier versions. This makes 
netcdf look for locations of the hdf5 libraries and include directories. The 
latter is not properly specified in $NAWIPS/extlibs/netCDF/makefile.common . 
The NCENV line needs to have âCPPFLAGS=-I$(OS_INC)â. That eliminates the error 
with hdf5.inc not being found, and thus the netcdf configuration and build 
proceeds. Howver, later on in the build, errors linking to various hdf5 
libraries occur, so some more work needs to be done there.

Itâs unclear to me if thereâs some functionality in these most recent GEMPAK 
versions that require netCDF4 (and thus HDF5), so Iâm ccâing Michael James 
here. Maybe we could just go back to not

"Older versions of 7 built on Ubuntu."

This was true for me as well, same system, pretty sure it was version 7.4.2.  I 
looked at the GEMPAK Github page and saw they went with updated versions of 
zlib, hdf5 and netcdf4 in 7.4.3, so I feel like that's related.

I tried building on CentOS 7 and it failed with NetCDF as well. I sent a 
message to Unidata about it but did not get an auto reply from support-gempak 
so donât know if they got it. I didnât get a reply from gembud either. I just 
used the CentOS rpm and it worked ok. I have Ubuntu systems but have not tried 
to upgrade those yet. Older versions of 7 built on Ubuntu.

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.

Hello,
I have been trying to get GEMPAK working on a Ubuntu Linux 16.04 server.  
Latest attempt was installing the version 7.4.5.  As I understand I should be 
able to test by running gdplot.

When I type gdplot I get:

No command âgdplotâ foundâ.

Environmental variables are set as instructed in .profile.  But the issue I am 
having appears to be that there is no executables in the package.  Was there 
another step that I have missed?

Thank you,
Paul
