[McIDAS #PSX-470067]: mcidas-x 2009 compile on Ubuntu question

Hi Tom,

Yes, your version of GCC matches what I use on my Fedora 12 workstation at
work and in the Fedora 11 virtual machine I run in VMware Player on my
Windows XP netbook at home.  It may be the case that the syslog.h include
file is part of a different package that either needs updating or has
a bug.  A quick Google (tm) search that I did yesterday, however, did
not show any smoking guns, or, at least not at first glance.

OK, good.  The change was a simple minded way of eliminating the use
of syslog altogether.

This is undoubtedly a shell-related issue (tclcomp is a shell script).


- is there any way that I could logon to your machine as 'mcidas' to

OK, thanks.  I don't have an Ubuntu 10.4 machine here at the UPC that I can use 

re: what version of GCC is installed on your machine?

This is the same version that I have access to on several platforms.

OK, I had to ask :-)

re: have you tried building the LDM on this machine?

A quick test build of LDM-6.8.1 should tell us if the syslog development
installation is munged.

Again, if there was a way I could logon to your Ubuntu machine, the 
would go a LOT faster.
