If your operating system is not in this list, you may need to build the LDM-McIDAS decoders from source. Rembember, however, that most applications built on a previous version of an OS will run on a newer version of the OS.

Information on building ldm-mcidas from source is found in the next section, Building and Installing. Please contact Unidata User Support for additional assistance.

Download Procedure

Since the LDM-McIDAS decoders are used almost exclusively with the LDM, we strongly suggest installing them in the ldm account.
    <login as the user ldm>

    Type: cd ~ldm
    Type: mkdir ldm-mcidas
    Type: cd ldm-mcidas

    <download the LDM-McIDAS source or binary distribution compressed tar
    file to this directory>
