I will look at support for 6.1 as soon as our copy comes in and we get it running on a machine here. I made an addenda to the McIDAS-X distribution that had the changes needed for 6.0 no September 14. You can read about the various modifications that have been made to the distribution since its original release in: Addenda http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/packages/mcidas/mcx/addenda.html The September addenda is: September 14, 1999 Bugfix Addenda # http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/packages/mcidas/mcx/addenda_990914.html >I've been working with the compile process on a considerably faster >computer to save time.

Is this typical >with a RH6x compile? SSEC released McIDAS 7.60 with a beta version of the netCDF 3.4 distribution. Modules that were changed in the full release were ncgentab.c and ncgenyy.c. These are causing the problem you are reporting above. >In any case, I'm working on a copy of RedHat 5.2 again. I would just >like to know about the compile process on 6.1 systems. I think that McIDAS-X will build on 6.1 if you update your distribution to the current addenda level. Please review the mods in the various addenda accessible from the Addenda page listed above.
