2011-03-31 Please note the date at the top of the file; these instructions are likely to become stale! * ncdf4 Streamer currently Depends: on ncdf4, which has system dependencies on NetCDF compiled with HDF5 support, which in turn has a dependency on a current zlib. The steps I took to install ncdf4 on SuSE11.3 are: ** Download dependency and ncdf4 source code Choose a convenient directory. I chose /home/mtmorgan/src. Download zlib: http://zlib.net/zlib-1.2.5.tar.gz hdf5: http://www.hdfgroup.org/ftp/HDF5/current/src/ NetCDF: http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/downloads/netcdf/ftp/netcdf-4.1.2.tar.gz ncdf4: e.g., http://cran.fhcrc.org/web/packages/ncdf4/index.html ** Build and install I build each package in the source directory, then installed them in the directory tree /home/mtmorgan/bin. I chose to install them into this tree to avoid conflicts with system variants, and because the software makes assumptions about folder structure that are most easily satisfied by doing as generic an installation as possible. Adjusting these... export SRCDIR=/home/mtmorgan/src export PREFIX=/home/mtmorgan/bin should make the code below cut-and-pasteable *** zlib cd ${SRCDIR}/zlib-1.2.5 CFLAGS=-fPIC ./configure --prefix=${PREFIX}/zlib-1.2.5 make install *** hdf5 cd ${SRCDIR}/hdf4 CFLAGS=-fPIC ./configure --with-zlib=${PREFIX}/zlib-1.2.5 \ --prefix=${PREFIX}/hdf5-1.8.6 make install *** netcdf cd ${SRCDIR}/netcdf-4.1.2 ./configure --with-hdf5=${PREFIX}/hdf5-1.8.6 \ --enable-netcdf4 --prefix=${PREFIX}/netcdf-4.1.2 make install *** ncdf4 cd ${SRCDIR}/ncdf4 LD_LIBRARY_PATH=${PREFIX}/netcdf-4.1.2/lib \ R CMD INSTALL \ --configure-args="--with-nc-config=${PREFIX}/netcdf-4.1.2/bin/nc-config" \ ncdf4_1.0.tar.gz
