Is necessary before install or update the ncl package, reinstall/rebuild these packages: g2clib, triangle, udunits, hdf4 (>=4.2.14-4). If everything went well in the build, it generates the binary /usr/bin/ncl. For fresh install run 'source /etc/profile' or relogin.

Hi, ncl-6.1.0-beta is released, I guess the package would not update until there is no '-beta' in the release name, but I do compiled it using the source code here with some additional modifications to make it pass.
Hope this would be of help to the next version of the package

Here's the changes:
Added -fno-range-check to gfortran compile flags (reflected in the patch file)
Adjusted some line numbers in the patch file, where the mfhdf.h was
Add openmotif to the makedepends as there were Xm/Xm.h ... warnings in make logs (don't know if the compilation to be incomplete without openmotif)
I also tried to add gcc include path in Site.local, but strangely all 'x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu' turned into '1-unknown-1-gnu' when make is done, haven't solved it, but it's not crucial

Hi @lijpbasin, this is right, but you can do too overwrite variable thus: export NCARG_USRRESFILE=~/.hluresfile
and save this line, if you want, in ~/.basrc

lijpbasin commented on 2012-05-15 13:52

Add something like
to your shell's rc file to use the ~/.hluresfile which can be modified more easily

Add something like
to your shell's rc file if edit the user resource file is needed
