Hi -
I am not quite sure how to get past this. I had been running the python script create_region just fine. Then, to keep things updated, I had re-built my netcdf-c and netcdf-fortran libs and header files as well has rebuilds of MPICH, Parallel IO, and Parallel netCDF. Anyway, as a result of this, create_region is erroring out with:"from ._netCDF4 import *: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory". Indeed, I no longer have this file in my NETCDF dir. I now have Is there a way to point/or re-build netCDF4 so it looks for instead of

Thanks for any pointers on this.

This requires a very big apology! Since I've been jumping between projects and do not spend a ton of time in the python world, I finally realized I was trying to run "create_region" by itself, rather than running it via "python3 create_region". The former gives me the error, the latter of course is what is intended. Again, sorry, for taking up bandwidth/anyone's time with this question.
