Arindam,

>reply....

Installation on Linux, especially RedHat 7.1 should be no problem
for either McIDAS or GEMPAK.  As far as McIDAS goes, please read the
Notes and Warnings piece of the Unidata McIDAS-X web site:

http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/packages/mcidas/780/mcx/warnings_mcx.html

To learn how to avoid one pitfall when using gcc/f2c to build McIDAS.

RedHat 7.3, on the other hand, will present problems due to a bug in
the XFree86 portion of the standard distribution.  This problem is
only for GEMPAK; it requires one to download the latest distribution
of XFree86 and install it in place of the version sent out with RH 7.3.
If you stay with 7.1, you will not run into this problem.

>Regards....

Cheers.

Tom
