Re: [gembud] Gempak-7.4.5.deb installation

Kevin,

 

Thank you for this!  Sorry for the noob question, but where is the
Makeinc.common_linux file located?

 

I found Makefile in ./GEMPAK7/extlibs/netCDF that has the following line:

 

NETCDF                          = $(OS-LIB)/libnetcdf.a

 

I'm thinking that is the line that you are saying needs replaced, but I'm
hesitant to edit the change with out confirmation.

 

Best Regards,

Paul

I can report that the resulting HDF5 library errors are eliminated by
editing Makeinc.common_linux so that the NETCDF line reads:

 

NETCDF            = $(OS_LIB)/libnetcdf.a -ldl -lz $(OS_LIB)/libhdf5_hl.a
$(OS_LIB)/libhdf5.a

To add to the conversation, I had a student trying to build on OSX with
similar hdf and netcdf issues..

 

I haven't had a chance to look too deeply into it as she is back in China
now, but it sounds very much like what we're discussing here.

Hi all,

 

In NAWIPS 7.5.1, NCEP added support to display netCDF 4 GOES-16/17 satellite
imagery, and so the library will be compiled with netcdf4 enabled from that
release forward.  In August I began to merge the NCEP 7.5.1 changes into
Unidata GEMPAK, and removed the "-disable-netcdf4" flag from the extlibs
build, but have held back on releasing the 7.5.1 due to some compilation
issues with the new im_rcdf4 and gossae4 subroutines (which is why Unidata
GEMPAK is at release 7.4.5 right now).

 

The RPMs and Debian binaries are containerized builds where on each OS
GEMPAK is built from source, so I know for certain that the CentOS builds
are complete *in those container environments* and within the installed
RPMs. However, it appears that the Debian build is broken because of this,
as mentioned here, and needs some attention from me to account for hdf5 and
netcdf4.

Maybe we could just go back to not enabling netcdf4 when netcdf is built?

The configuration process for netCDF, as set in
$NAWIPS/extlibs/netCDF/Makefile has removed -disable-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
$NAWIPS/extlibs/netCDF/makefile.common . The NCENV line needs to have
"CPPFLAGS=-I$(OS_INC)". 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.

 

It's unclear to me if there's some functionality in these most recent GEMPAK
versions that require netCDF4 (and thus HDF5), so I'm cc'ing 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 don't know if they got it. I didn't 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 'gdplot' found..

 

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
