The config.log looks good, and indicates you're using an i686 architecture, which is 32-bit. The netCDF library can be compiled and built OK on 32-bit architectures, but it looks like there is something wrong with the WGRIB2 build system for 32-bit architectures, as they report in this file: ftp://ftp.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/wd51we/wgrib2/README.netcdf3 where it says to get wgrib2 on a 32-bit architecture, you'll need to use netCDF-4. You can get netCDF-4 from here: ftp://ftp.unidata.ucar.edu/pub/netcdf/netcdf.tar.gz and build it separately, before building wgrib2. It looks like you want to configure with ./configure --disable-netcdf-4 using whatever prefix you want as the root of the installation (but not the same as the source directory!). You can also use --disable-dap if you have no use for access to data on remote OPeNDAP servers (or THREDDS servers). Here's more details: http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/netcdf/docs/build_classic.html > The "make check" output is below: > > address@hidden:~/grib2$ make check > make: *** No rule to make target `check'. Stop. > > I hope it means something to you because it does not look very helpful to me > :) I should have specified the "make check" output run from the netcdf/ top-level source directory, which would have produced the "nc_test" error you saw. But there's no need for it now, since wgrib2 apparently can't build netCDF-3 correctly on 32-bit platforms, according to the wgrib2/README.netcdf3 document referenced above. If building from source still leads to problems, I notice there are pre-built versions of netCDF libraries available from Ubuntu package repositories, found by Googling for ubuntu netcdf-3 --Russ > -----Original Message----- > From: Unidata netCDF Support [mailto:address@hidden > Sent: Friday, November 01, 2013 2:19 PM > To: Cronk,Heather > Cc: address@hidden > Subject: [netCDF #YHW-805750]: error installing wgrib2 > > Hi Heather, > > > I am installing the wgrib2 package using the default configuration > > directions located here: > > > > ftp://ftp.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/wd51we/wgrib2/INSTALLING > > > > During the installation, 1 out of the 5 tests failed.
