Hi group! I'm using WRF4.2.2 .I followd the online toturial, and passed all the test.
And I tested WRF and WRF-CHEM without kpp successfully compiled.
While the compiling of WRF-CHEM with kpp can't finished, and the error is
code.c:129:5: warning: implicit declaration of function ‘FatalError’ [-Wimplicit-function-declaration]
129 | FatalError(3,"%s: Can't create file", bufname );
I appreciate any help you can give me.

It looks like KPP is working: e.g., "KPP has succesfully created the model "racm_soa_vbs_het".

I think you may have just had a memory error:

including Registry/registry.solar_fields

0.06user 0.01system 0:00.08elapsed 98%CPU (0avgtext+0avgdata 27056maxresident)k
0inputs+16outputs (0major+7720minor)pagefaults 0swaps

Try increasing the amount of memory you use to compile.
