[Miscellaneous #UFF-250801]: GOES east & west geotiff files

Hi Derek,

No, the environment variable McINST_ROOT needs to be defined before
'mcunpack' can be run.  All you need to do is define McINST_ROOT to
be the HOME directory of your 'mcidas' user.  For example:

<logged in as 'mcidas>


Bourne Shell/BASH

Then unpack the McIDAS distribution and start the build:



cd mcidas2015/src


At some point, the build may fail if all of the needed development
packages have not been installed.

The packages that you will likely need to install for the McIDAS build
are included in the 'yum' command to install them:

<as 'root'>
yum install gcc-gfortran gcc-c++ byacc flex ncurses-devel libXt-devel 
libXext-devel xinetd xorg-x11-fonts-misc xorg-x11-fonts-100dpi 

If you also want to install the LDM at some point, you will need to run:

<as 'root'>
yum install libxml2-devel

> Thanks again,

No worries.
