Hi Colleen, > I am trying to install netcdf on my MacBook Pro (Mac OS.X 10.7 Lion).

If you're still having trouble, you might check the MacPorts port of the "netcdf-fortran" package for OSX. Once you have installed "port", it builds and installs all necessary libraries by just invoking: sudo port install netcdf-fortran --Russ Russ Rew UCAR Unidata Program address@hidden http://www.unidata.ucar.edu Ticket Details =================== Ticket ID: URQ-247314 Department: Support netCDF Priority: Normal Status: Closed
