We'll worry about the testing after we get mcimage going. The output of the mcimage link from your ~mcidas/mcidas7.6/src/makelog shows what we expected: a library search is failing: >OK...here's the errors from makelog > >compile mci_nvpp.for: done >./mccomp -O -s -o mcimage mci.o mci_brie.o mci_buff.o mci_cmap.o >mci_comb.o mc >i_cpfl.o mci_curs.o mci_evnt.o mci_frfl.o mci_glbl.o mci_rsrc.o >mci_updt.o mci >_visl.o mci_nvpp.o -L. -lmcidas -lXext -lX11 >mcfc -s -O -o mcimage mci.o mci_brie.o mci_buff.o mci_cmap.o mci_comb.o >mci_cp >fl.o mci_curs.o mci_evnt.o mci_frfl.o mci_glbl.o mci_rsrc.o mci_updt.o >mci_vis >l.o mci_nvpp.o -L. -lmcidas -lXext -lX11 -Wl,-bbigtoc -lm >collect2: ld returned 8 exit status >ld: 0711-317 ERROR: Undefined symbol: .XShmCreateImage >ld: 0711-317 ERROR: Undefined symbol: .XShmAttach >ld: 0711-317 ERROR: Undefined symbol: .XShmDetach >ld: 0711-317 ERROR: Undefined symbol: .XShmQueryVersion >ld: 0711-317 ERROR: Undefined symbol: .XShmPutImage >ld: 0711-345 Use the -bloadmap or -bnoquiet option to obtain more >information. >link mcimage: done > >OOPS. This appears to be related to X and shared memory. I did not have time on Saturday to look on my AIX 4.3 system to see which library was not being searched, and I will not be able to do so today until about 3 pm our time (I am at home working on my cedar shake roof). I searched the SSEC web pages on installing 7.6 to see if there was something I missed in extra configuration steps for AIX (e.g. special directories needed for your LPATH), but I did not see anything obvious. I will do a complete search of the AIX libraries this afternoon to see what library the XShm... libraries are contained in. Tom
