Hello everyone, i was planning on updating for my new project to WRFCHEM v4, but its the first time i am having problems compiling WPS.
I am using option 17 Intel compiler (serial) and when i compiling i am getting only the ungrib.exe.
I am attaching configure.wps and a compile log file. I would really appreciate it if someone could help me!!
I have read a similar topic with the same problem but i didnt have any luck with the solutions proposed.
Thanks all in advance

Did you happen to compile WRF with the shared memory option (either smpar or dm+sm)? If so, WPS is trying to link against the WRF I/O for shared memory and needs the OpenMP information. If that's the case, follow these steps for WPS:
1) ./clean -a
2) ./configure
3) Open the configure.wps file and look for the "WRF_LIB" line. At the end of that line add
-liomp5 -lpthread
4) save the configure.wps file and then recompile

Let me know if that helps.
Thanks a lot for your reply, that was the case. I am sorry for the delay, i was out of the office for a few days.
