Error in building wrf

Hi All,

I am trying to build wrf on my pc but I keep getting an error. I have been stuck here for so long and I can't seem to figure a way out. When I run "./configure --prefix=$DIR/netcdf --disable-dap --disable-netcdf-4 --disable-shared" I get an error message in the config.log file which reads "
configure:4028: error: in `/Users/newuser/Build_WRF/netcdf-fortran-4.5.2': configure:4030: error: C compiler cannot create executables See `config.log' for more details

Thanks for your help.
Unfortunately this is a netCDF issue, and not specific to WRF. I would advise that you speak to a systems administrator at your institution to see if they are able to help.

Just to note:
We do not support compiling WRF on a Windows machine - only on Linux or Mac operating systems. On your PC, have you built another OS parallel to Windows (e.g., Linux)?
