Re: visad compile error


Hi Steve, Thanks for the tip. After installing java3d I was able to 
get rid of a lot of compilation errors, but I am still left with
a few:

error: Class visad.RemoteServerImpl not found.
error: Class visad.RemoteFieldImpl not found.
error: Class visad.RemoteFunctionImpl not found.
error: Class visad.RemoteDataImpl not found.
error: Class visad.RemoteThingImpl not found.
error: Class visad.RemoteDataReferenceImpl not found.
error: Class visad.RemoteThingReferenceImpl not found.
error: Class visad.RemoteDisplayImpl not found.
error: Class visad.RemoteActionImpl not found.
error: Class visad.RemoteCellImpl not found.
10 errors
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `compile'


Any suggestions? Thanks a lot for your help.
