[McIDAS #YUN-823771]: McIDAS won't start after instalation

Hi Melvin,

I have seen this kind of thing happen on occasion, and I never knew exactly why
it occurred.  A procedure that has worked in the past -- assuming that the
environment variables needed to build and run are correctly set -- is the

<as 'mcidas'>
cd ~mcidas/mcidas2006/src
make uninstall
make install

Please give this a try and see if your problem doesn't go away.

> Thanks

No worries.
