Is necessary before install or update ncl package, reinstall/rebuild these packages: g2clib, triangle, udunits, hdf4, hdf-eos (2 and 5)

Due to updates in HDF libraries I ran into some trouble getting this to work. When reinstalling/rebuilding hdf4 remember enabling szlib, disabling netcdf and renaming the ncdump and ncgen binaries it creates (like hdf4-nonetcdf's PKGBUILD used to do). Then reinstall hdf-eos-common. Then hdf-eos2 using installed h4cc. I also used h4cc to compile hdf-eos5 because could not get it to work with h5cc for some reason. Then to compile ncl add options -lsz -ltirpc to definition of HDFlib in Site.local file. This changes the MD5SUM of this file. Also changed hdf4-nonetcdf for hdf4 as a dependency in PKGBUILD.

Thanks for the report @OdinEidolon, fixed.

Maybe one could use this? https://www.earthsystemgrid.org/dataset/ncl.640.src/file/ncl_ncarg-6.4.0.tar.gz

Hi @graziano, currently there's not "or" implementation in PKGBUILD for put these options in depends, there are other options like environment variable but is not good idea for options depends, the current option is edit the PKGBUILD before compile it, but I think that the better is choose the best depend package by default. What do you think about that, I only tested with lesstif, with openmotif compile and run fine? do you think that openmotif is better over lesstif?

graziano commented on 2017-11-21 15:29

Can we have an option to have lesstiff or openmotif? Both packages provide same interface and ncl compiles and works just fine also with openmotif.

Hi, the links from fedora are broken, apparently.

Thanks

Hi @werewolf,
I don't know if ncl can build in arm architecture, and I can't test on this. If you have some patches I can add it in pkgbuild
