Problems compiling WRF RIP


New member
Dear all,

I am trying to compile RIP in my linux system but I get problems during the "configure" step. In particular, I get the following error message:


Using NCAR Graphics in /home/dcc364/RIP_test/NCARG/
Will use NETCDF in dir: /opt/netcdf-4.3.0
sw_ncarg_version = 6
library = -lcairo -lfontconfig -lpixman-1 -lfreetype -lexpat -lpthread -lbz2 -lXrender -lgfortran -lgcc

Please select from among the following supported platforms.

1. PC Linux i486 i586 i686 x86_64, PGI compiler
2. PC Linux i486 i586 i686 x86_64, g95 compiler
3. PC Linux i486 i586 i686 x86_64, gfortran compiler
4. PC Linux i486 i586 i686 x86_64, Intel compiler

Enter selection [1-4] : 4
Configuration successful. To build RIP4, type: compile

Testing compatability of compiler and libraries

COMPILER is ifort

NCARGLIBS are -L${NCARG_ROOT}/lib -lncarg -lncarg_gks -lncarg_c -lX11 -lXext -lpng -lz -lcairo -lfontconfig -lpixman-1 -lfreetype -lexpat -lpthread -lbz2 -lXrender -lgfortran -lgcc

FFLAGS are -I. -convert big_endian

##### DCC ####

ifort -I. -convert big_endian fort_ncarg.f -o fort_ncarg -L/home/dcc364/RIP_test/NCARG//lib -lncarg -lcgm -lncarg_gks -lncarg_c -lX11 -lm > /dev/null 2>&1

The Fortran compiler, ifort is not consistent with the version of NCAR Graphics.

I am using intel compilers "ifort". However, NCL was installed using a precompiled binaries, as it is recommended.

How I could fix this problem?

Thanks in advance,
