Compiling and running WPS using Conda


New member
Does anyone have experience successfully compiling and running WPS with the help of a Conda environment? I am trying to establish my WRF workflow to compile and run on UCAR/Derecho. I'm using the following already available modules:

module load ncarenv/23.06
module load intel-classic/2023.0.0
module load ncarcompilers/1.0.0
module load cray-mpich/8.1.25
module load craype/2.7.20
module load netcdf-mpi/4.9.2

I successfully compiled WRF using these modules. Then for WPS, I've created and activated a new Conda environment and used this to provide the compression libraries Jasper and Libpng, specifically:

conda install -c conda-forge jasper=1.900.1 libpng

Using this combination, WPS compiled successfully, but when I try to run ungrib.exe I get the following error message:

./ungrib.exe: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Any suggestions? What's a "winning" combination of Conda package versions and build versions? Thanks!
