Hello, The ease of install is largely a matter of perspective, and can be influenced by any number of environmental issues. For example, in the case where you are installing an older and unsupported version (such as 4.1.3), there is an increasing chance over time that the software simply won't compile, because it has not been maintained. The .libs/ directory you mention is part of the autotools based build, and contains various files that are then copied to the appropriate location when 'make install' is invoked; the library is not meant to simply be built and used, but it must also be installed. In this way it is similar to other libraries. Can you provide the config.log file generated when you configured netCDF 126.96.36.199? That may provide some additional information which I can use to figure out why this build failed. Thank you, have a great day, -Ward > First of all I must say that installing netcdf is no easy task at all, > why? > > The only version of netcdf I have managed to install is netcdf-4.1.3. > Even with this version, my config.log in installation of WRF > includes one include library as -L/usr/local/netcdf-4.1.3/lib.
