Hi Ying,

>Thanks for your tremedous help in the past!

No worries.

After looking at the error message in the JPEG file you sent, I suggest
that you go ahead and finish the installation of McIDAS without the
testing step.  The reason for this is that the problem is caused by
some needed environment variable tweaking.  Since I have installed
Unidata McIDAS-X on tens of Linux machines and never seen a problem,
I am willing to bet that you won't see any after the 'make install'.

By the way, are you upgrading from a previous release of McIDAS?
If yes, then the steps need in the installation of v2004 are:

<all done as 'mcidas'>

1) cd ~/mcidas2003/src
   make uninstall.all

2) cd ~mcidas/mcidas2004/src
   make install              <- not running McIDAS-XCD decoders
   -- or --
   make install.all          <- running McIDAS-XCD decoders

>The problem still exists if I set the tk_version as 8.4. I believe it's
>the link problem on tcl/tk. Some lib directory can not be found. Previously
>I set LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib, and it was able to locate tk8.4.so,
>tcl8.4.so.  Do I need to specify some more directories?

No, you don't need to specify more directories.  For the testing step
you would hae to set the TCL_LIBRARY and TK_LIBRARY environment
variables to point at the ~mcidas/mcidas2004/tcl/unix and
~mcidas/mcidas2004/tk/unix directories.  I think that the effort in
doing this for the testing is more than simply going ahead and
finishing the installation and testing "live" (without the special
environment variable settings).  I feel fully confident that your
package will work fine after you finish the installation.

>Thank you!

No worries.

Cheers,

Tom
