[McIDAS #WPD-667222]: Fwd: McIDAS 2017 install



Hi Greg,

Since questions like the one below are really mainline support, I drove
your question into our inquiry tracking system...

I just went through the same thing with another user, but he was trying
to build the current Unidata v2016 release, not v2017.

Since the build should rely on the zlib distribution that is contained in
the Unidata McIDAS distribution, it suggests to me that you did not follow
the instructions for setting up the 'mcidas' account contained in:

Unidata McIDAS-X User's Guide

Preparing the mcidas Account
http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/mcidas/current/users_guide/PreparingthemcidasAccount.html

Question:

- did you follow the instructions that direct one to source the 
shell-appropriate
  'mcidas' environment file before attempting a build?

  If not, please follow the instructions in the page above and retry the bulid
  from scratch:

  <as 'mcidas'>
  -- source the shell-specific 'mcidas' environment file
  cd ~mcidas/mcidas2017/src
  make clobber
  make

  Now, if you did source the environment file and the build still failed
  it must mean that the zlib and zlib-devel packages need to be installed.
  This should _not_ be the case however, so I really need to know which
  approach works so I can adjust the distribution accordingly.

Cheers,

Tom
