MADIS2LITTLEr converter compilation issue

Post by tesfamichaelb » Fri Sep 25, 2020 12:31 am

Hello everyone,
This might not be the right place, but I thought it is closest as data assimilation work goes. … Anyways, I am working on FDDA observational nudging and trying to compile the converter from MADIS data format to Little_r format. The result is used as input into WRF model for Obs nudging. However, I encountered the incompatibility issue. My computer platform is "x86_64 GNU/Linux | x86_64-redhat-linux". To compile the "MADIS2Little_r" executable file, I tried both the 32bit and 64bit without any success or helpful debug info. All it gives me is the following:
==
Compiling MADIS2LITTLER with gfortran

/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /home/tes/madis-4.3/lib/libmadis.a when searching for -lmadis
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lmadis
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
Error: madis_to_little_r.exe not created
==
Your help is highly appreciated.
Tes

Hi,
The issue was resolved after I had to compile the required MADIS library from the source code, first. I formerly tried to use the binary file prepared for Linux platforms, provided on the MADIS webpage for Madis2Little_r script compilation.
Thanks,
