[McIDAS #XRR-599672]: Configuring scouring of McIDAS data



Hi Samuel,

If there is a step missing in the instructions, I am very interested in 
pinpointing what
it should be and fixing it!

Very good.

This is _very_ good.  Your problem last time was related to an inconsistent 
installation
of MySQL which you attempted to work around by copying MySQL libraries to 
places where
they did not belong.

My first guess would be that GRID and/or GRIB processing has not been 
configured.
Did you make sure to turn on GRIB and/or GRIB processing?  One way of doing this
is:

<as 'mcidas'>
cd $MCDATA
decinfo.k LIST        <- check the listing to see if DMGRID and/or DMBIN is 
active

If DMGRID (GRID decoding) and/or DMBIN (GRIB processing) is _not_ active, this 
is
your problem which is remedied by activating it/them:

decinfo.k SET DMGRID ACTIVE       <- if you want GRID decoding (non-MySQL)
decinfo.k SET DMBIN ACTIVE        <- if you want GRIB processing

If GRID and/or GRIB processing was correctly configured, then the only thing I
can think of is that your McIDAS build did not include support for MySQL.  To 
see
if this is the case, please send me the following:

- contents of your ~mcidas/.bash_profile file (if you are using BASH)
- the output from:

  ldd ~mcidas/bin/dmbin.k

> You might want to refer to WTM-677712 as well.

We probably have enough to go on with the above.

Cheers,

Tom
