Dear WRF users,
I'm compiling the WRF V4.2 into my computer, selected option is dmpar, 1-basic nesting, ./compile em_real.
But the compilation failed
The log file is very long, and I found this seems reporting about the errorScreenshot from 2020-06-08 17-12-32.png

I exactly follow the steps in
I did success with WRFV4.2 compiling to another computer which has the same OS system (centOS 7) with the computer I am compiling on.

I attached here the log file.
Could you please help me to find the exact errors and how to solve them?

Thanks a lot!
Ha Chi

Looking at your log, it seems that you might have some incompatible libraries/compilers (or don't have the correct compilers loaded).

Is it possible that the installation of netcdf was done with a different compiler?

I'm new to working a unix environment and WRF, but I think the errors are being thrown because your WRF compile is looking for files associated with PGI and mpich compilers.

I hope this helps!

Your log file indicates that you try to build WRF with fortran, but some of your code is precompiled using PGI.
Please make sure your netCDF is installed using the same version of gfortran. Then type ./clean -a, and recompile the code.
