[LDM #EIW-321327]: Updating ldm



Carol,

Changing the group membership of the LDM user shouldn't affect the installation 
or running of the LDM because -- as the owner of the files -- the LDM user has 
all the permission it needs.

The output of the configure-script contained this:

    checking for libxml/parser.h... no
    configure: error: Header-file not found

The libxml2 development package must be installed in order to build the LDM. 
The prerequisites are listed at 
<http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/ldm/ldm-current/basics/platform.html>.

When you've installed the prerequisite packages, then re-execute the 
configure-script.

> I did removed the --enable-logging to the ./configure command, but it
> still didn't work.
> 
> I think I'm having an issue with group permissions. About a year our TC
> department changed the group of the ldm account from users to sysgroup.
> I have a feeling this is causing some permission error in the configure
> of ldm. Is there a way I could safely change the ownership of all the
> files in /home/ldm to ldm:sysgroup? Maybe this is bad idea....

Regards,
Steve Emmerson
