>I'm back on task with this mcidas installation.

Since we last "talked" I and at least two of my sites have built McIDAS-X
7.6x on RedHat 6.2 Linux.

>The last problem we had,

Right, the error was that 'agetserv' could not be run "No such file or
directory".  To me, this means that agetserv is either munged, not
installed, or was never successfully built.

My first suspicion is that the version of f2c, libf2c.a, and/or f2c.h
that you are trying to use is not the correct one for RedHat 6.x.  For
my Linux users convenience, I put these files in the unix/760/fortran
directory of the passworded McIDAS FTP account (forgive me if we have
been down this road before, but I am answering this from home after a
long day of scraping paint (stripper fumes :o).  The reason that I am
suspicious is that use of the wrong f2c/libf2c.a will result in
"something" being built for Fortran routines, but they will not run.
Even if you did grab these files (hopefully in binary mode), you could
still be linking against the incorrect f2c library.  Check your
LD_LIBRARY_PATH and make sure that the directory into which your copy
of libf2c.a (/usr/local/lib) is the first in your LD_LIBRARY_PATH:

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib:/lib:/usr/lib

Also, make sure that f2c.h gets copied to /usr/local/include (you may
have to create this directory!), and f2c gets copied to /usr/local/bin
AND that this directory is the on in which f2c is found when you try to
run it.

The last correspondence I had with either of you two was the one in
which I noted that that agetserv might be munged or missing.  If you
remembered, I offered to logon to the PC if it was accessible over the
net and get things rolling.  The offer still stands.
