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

Hi Alan,

I was out of the office yesterday, hence the tardy reply.

> Thanks for trying again--argh!

No worries.  We are _so_ close.

By the way, in my SSH attempts Wednesday night, I learned enough to be able
to come up with a Google (tm) search to help shed light on what may be
going on.  I used '"/usr/bin/cpp" fails sanity check' as the search key
and found:

  That means that you didn't install your C++ compiler.

  You can install g++ on Fedora, by doing Code:

  yum install gcc-c++

NB: updates/installs must be done by 'root'.

So, it looks like you need to install gcc-c++ (g++) to satisfy the HDF
configure process (even though you are not going to be building the
C++ interface).

Sorry, the permissions "stab in the dark" was off the mark.

I don't think those changes were userful.

I tried to SSH to your machine again (approx 3:30 MDT, Friday) and couldn't
connect.  I will try again tonight or tomorrow from my home machine.
In the meantime, please install the gcc-c++ package and then retry your
McIDAS build:

<as 'mcidas'>
cd ~mcidas/mcidas2005/src
make clobber
make all

> Thanks,...Alan

No worries.  We will get this solved one way or another.
