re:

My intention in providing the information above was to demonstrate
that the problem you are experiencing has _nothing_ to do with
McIDAS-X per se.  McIDAS appears to be built and installed just
fine on weather, and I assume that the same thing is true on
weather2 and weather3.

re:

There is something else weird happening on your machine, but I
can't put my finger on what it is.  I say this because I upgraded
my Unidata workstation from CentOS x86_64 6.7 to 6.8, and I have
absolutely no problems with X displays.

I will talk to Mike Schmidt tomorrow and get back to you with
whatever we figure out...

Cheers,

Tom
