[netCDF #ILV-896191]: Installation problem

Hi Arezoo,

> I have tried to install netcdf but I am getting error during installation. I 
> wan wondering if you could help? I am using CentOS and it is 64bit. Below is 
> the steps I have taken as suggested by my colleague:
> 1- I created the netcdf directory in /home/ldm
> 2- cd netcdf
> 3- I got the same version which my colleague is using from 
> (http://www.gfd-dennou.org/library/netcdf/unidata-mirror/)

A newer version 4.3.0, with bug fixes and performance improvements since 4.2.0, 
available from here:


> 4- tar -xvzf netcdf-4.2.0.tar.gz
> 5- cd netcdf-4.2

     cd netcdf-4.2.0

> 6- ./configure --prefix=/home/ldm/netcdf --enable-netcdf-4

If you want netCDF-4 enabled, you will have to get and install
the HDF5 library first.  If it's correctly installed, you need
to provide the configure script with its location, as described 


> 7- make
> Then I got these errors:

This was probably a result of inadequate permissions to create new files in the
directory /home/ldm/netcdf/netcdf-4.2/man4/

I'd recommend starting with the latest release, 4.3.0, and following the 
for building that release.  If you really need to use 4.2.0, the same 
instructions should
work for building that release, too.
