Sorry, but we don't create or distribute the rpm packages for AIX, so can't help with this problem. I suggest you report the problem to the creator of the AIX netCDF package. We don't have an up-to-date AIX platform on which to run tests, so we depend on other members of the AIX community to test new releases of netCDF software and let us know if any patches are needed. I don't recall getting a patch for AIX recently ... --Russ Russ Rew UCAR Unidata Program address@hidden http://www.unidata.ucar.edu Ticket Details =================== Ticket ID: BNJ-261290 Department: Support netCDF Priority: Normal Status: Closed
