[McIDAS #MET-935016]: McIDAS - Cannot get mcunpack to execute -- keep getting message to define McINST_ROOT

Hi Alan,

> Busy day at the UGa yesterday.

No worries.  In looking through all that you did, I would say
that it is pretty definitive that your machine does not have
gcc installed.  Given this, I would also guess that you do not
have other packages needed to build McIDAS installed.  Your
system administrator needs, therefore, to install a full development
environment before you can proceed.

Running updatedb only updates the database of installed packages,
it does not install new packages (i.e., it updates the database that
locate uses).

When I run 'locate gcc' on my Fedora Core 4 machine and count
the number of entries listed using:

locate gcc | wc -l

I get ALOT more entries than your listing, and one of them is

> When I executed 'which gcc' I obtained the message that the
> path did not seem to be found:
> address@hidden ~]$ which gcc
> /usr/bin/which: no gcc in
> (/usr/kerberos/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin)

gcc should be installed in /usr/bin.  Since /usr/bin is included in
your PATH, it indicates that gcc is not installed on your machine.

This would not help since the directory that should contain the
gcc executble was already included in your PATH.

> For the record, the .bashrc reads:

OK, looks good.

This is the same error as before.  It is expected since gcc is
not installed on your machine.

At this point, my logging in as 'mcidas' would only serve to
verify the steps that you have already run.  Unless I am totally
offbase in my observations that you do not have a development
environment installed, the next bit is the installation of a
full development environment by 'root'.

> Thanks,

No worries.
