Hi guys, this is my first topic so nice to meet you! :)
I have a problem with WRFV4.0, in order to run real.exe, this version needs the library
But the newest version with this library included is, which sucks, because with this old openmpi I can't do another things, like run wrf.exe. So, I don't know what to do, do you know if there is a newer version of openmpi with this library? If not, what can I do to above this problem? By the way, I run the WRF3.9 without problems, but I need the V4.0 to do my thesis, I don't know why 4.0 needs this library if 3.9 doesn't.
Thank you very much.
A hug for you.
Hi Marian,
I have not heard of this problem yet. You could try installing MPICH instead and see if you have better results with that. Take a look at this page, which can guide you through the steps of installing libraries, etc.:
