Having an LDM user isn't a necessity (I don't use one for developing the LDM). It does, however, make things easier. > nor have i edited the conf files for the same reasons above > > getconf(1) does exist: > gisdev03[root] $ which getconf > /usr/bin/getconf Having getconf(1) on a system that doesn't use the native compiler is a bad thing because getconf(1) will probably return inappropriate compiler options.

The URL <http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/ldm/ldm-6.6.5/basics/source-install-steps.html#build> has shell-dependent instructions on how to do such redirection. I suggest you execute my last set of instructions again with the redirections in place. > the files are attached > > i really,really appreciate your help on this > i have to eat something and then attend a couple of meetings, so i wont > be near email for a couple of hours That's the beauty of email. :-) > thanks again > --kassim Regards, Steve Emmerson Ticket Details =================== Ticket ID: MAC-518090 Department: Support LDM Priority: Normal Status: On Hold
