[McIDAS #HCS-801574]: McIDAS on Keable's Cyclone machine...



Hi Jim,

This is a quick note to see if you have revisited the development environment
issue on your AIX cluster.  As a reminder, my previous email was:

> Hi Jim,
> 
> After receiving your note about the 'mcidas' account being locked out due to 
> too many
> incorrect passwords being tried, I was able to logon to the DU AIX machine 
> this morning.
> 
> Upon noticing that the setup of .cshrc did not follow the recommendations 
> listed in
> the Preparing the McIDAS Account section of the Unidata McIDAS-X Users Guide:
> 
> http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/mcidas/current/users_guide/PreparingthemcidasAccount.html
> 
> I made some small changes:
> 
> <as 'mcidas'>
> cd ~mcidas
> mv .cshrc cshrc.old
> -- create a new .cshrc file with the contents recommended in the page listed 
> above
> 
> I then proceeded to try and build McIDAS from scratch:
> 
> -- logoff and then log back on to force use of the newly created .cshrc file
> cd ~mcidas/mcidas2007/src
> make clobber
> make all
> 
> I believe that I got significantly further this time, but still not to the 
> end.
> Here is the error message seen at the end of ~mcidas/mcidas2007/src/makelog:
> 
> rm -f mci.o
> cc -c -O -I. -I../netcdf/libsrc -I../hdf/hdf/src -I../hdf/mfhdf/libsrc

> "mci.c", line 422.24: 1506-068 (W) Operation between types "char*" and "const

> I believe that the real problem is that the include file XShm.h does not 
> exist on your

> 
> /home/mcidas/mcidas2007/src% ls -alt /usr/include/X11/extensions/XShm.h
> -rw-r--r--   1 bin      bin            4512 Apr 05 2001  
> /usr/include/X11/extensions/XShm.h
> 
> I interpret this to indicate that your machine does not have a full X 
> development
> environment installed.  As soon as the needed extensions are installed (the 
> MIT shared memory
> extension), the build should continue at least until the next hiccup.

Cheers,

Tom
