First, on my Mac laptop, I installed netcdf-184.108.40.206 and netcdf-fortran-4.2 by just using the MacPorts netcdf-fortran package that Takeshi Horinouchi maintains, using: sudo port install netcdf-fortran But if you don't have MacPorts (http://www.macports.org/) already installed, that can be an obstacle. You didn't say whether you're following these steps: http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/netcdf/docs/netcdf-fortran-install.html but they have some hints that have cleared up some problems. In particular, there is this, which is relevant when you're using mpicc and mpif90: For parallel I/O: The configure script sets CFLAGS appropriately for standard compilers, but if you are building with parallel I/O using wrappers such as mpicc and mpif90, you sometimes have to set CFLAGS to indicate which Fortran compiler is wrapped by mpif90. For example, if "mpicc --show" and "mpif90 --show" indicate gcc and gfortran are being used, then set CFLAGS=-DgFortran, and similarly set CFLAGS=-DpgiFortran for Portland Group compilers. So CFLAGS=-DgFortran would have had to be set in the netCDF C library build, before trying to build the separate Fortran library with gfortran. --Russ Russ Rew UCAR Unidata Program address@hidden http://www.unidata.ucar.edu Ticket Details =================== Ticket ID: UUD-717336 Department: Support netCDF Priority: Normal Status: Closed
