[netCDF #HPQ-121364]: Installation of NETCDF on Fedora22

Hello Joel,

It appears that HYSPLIT may be looking for the netcdf fortran interface; I base 
this on your comment that HYSPLIT is looking for netcdf.inc, which is related 
to the fortran package.  You have so far installed the netcdf-c library, which 
is great; the fortran interface relies on it.  The next step would be to 
download the netcdf-fortran source code from 
https://github.com/Unidata/netcdf-fortran/releases/tag/v4.4.2 and build it.  
Instructions for building netcdf-fortran may be found at 

I hope this helps, let me know if you run into any further issues,


> I am having trouble properly installing NETCDF on a newly formatted
> Fedora22 system.  I feel like I have successfully installed NETCDF yet when
> I compile HYSPLIT, one of the auxiliary programs dependent on the library
> (called ARW2ARL - it converts WRF data to ARL hysplit format) can not find
> the library, no matter what I do.  Feedback from HYSPLIT indicates I have

> While the program appears to install, it does not contain files such as

> --with-udunits
> sudo make install
> make check
> I've attached the config.log file.
