WPS Compilation error

Hi all,

I am running into WPS compilation error after I have successfully compiled the WRF code.

I attach here the compile.log.

I would appreciate the help.

Best, Prerita

The first error in your compile log is

/scratch/sw/anaconda/anaconda3-2021.11/bin/mpicc: line 301: x86_64-conda_cos6-linux-gnu-cc: command not found

make[1]: [../../configure.wps:98: cio.o] Error 127 (ignored)
This seems to indicate an issue with MPI. However, even if you compiled WRF for the use of MPI (e.g., dmpar), it is not necessary to choose this option when compiling WPS. Unless you plan to have extremely large domains (several thousand x several thousand grid points), it is perfectly fine to choose the serial option. As long as that's the case, I'd recommend trying again with a serial option (make sure to issue a "./clean -a" and then reconfigure before compiling again. Let me know if that is sufficient.
