Hi folks,

Since you've cited an RPM, I'd like to point out the netcdf package
thats included in Fedora Extras:

for Fedora Core 3 and 4.  It has the following features:

 + trivial install: "yum install netcdf netcdf-devel"

 + includes libraries compatible with both g77 (gcc 3.x which 
   can be installed on Fedora Core 4 with "compat-gcc-32-g77") 
   and the newer gfortran (part of gcc 4.x)

 + Fedora Extras currently ships with many helpful related 
   and/or dependent packages including:
     NCO, ncview, cdo, udunits, grads, hdf, hdf5, etc.

 + the above packages are actively maintained, so if you have 
   any problems please submit them to the Fedora (Red Hat) 
   bugzilla at:

Also, if you have any suggestions for improving Fedora support for
netcdf or any related software, please send an email.
