please respond to that
This is possibly a memory issue. Please build WRF in dmpar mode, then run with multiple processors. In this case, you will have more memory and hope the model can run. Please let me know if you still have problems.
Dear ming chen

Thanks for your reply
i got the solution, run ‘unlimit’ or ‘ulimit -s unlimited’ in terminal before running ./real.exe, this solve my problem
for more detail go to the manual.
