CCTM compilation errorr (**ERROR** while running make command)

I am getting errors while compiling the CCTM. I am attaching my log file for reference. And here is my errors:

It would be great if anyone can help me. I badly need help. I appreciate your help.

It is strongly recommended (
that you build netCDF for yourself using the same compilers and flags used for your I/O API installation, and using the netCDF-configure flags
--disable-netcdf-4 --disable-dap
This would seem to be something other than the recommended netCDF configuration.

Thank you so much for your response.

Hi sadia, I am facing same problem here. Did you solved it with enabled --dap and netcdf-4? or you installed netcdf again by disabling --dap?

My problems were solved when I applied a different version of ioapi library and different compiler. You can also check with updated version of ioapi. Hope that would be helpful. Best of luck.

Thank you. I am using pgi 18.10 compiler and ioapi 3.1. Now I will use ioapi 3.2 as you suggested!

Hi Sadia, I tried by changing ioapi version. I used:
Ioapi 3.2
netcdf 4.6.1
pgi 18.10
cmaq 5.2.1
but still got those error during cctm build!

Do you think I should use dap disabled netcdf version?

Hi Uzzal,

Sorry to know that. I really not that much knowledge about that and I did not use pgi. I used Ioapi 3.2, netcdf4.6.1, but intel2018 compiler. Did you properly checked the path of the mpi and other libraries and include files in the cmaq_config.csh and cctm_run.csh scripts? As far I could remember I had to change some configuration of my cctm_rum script. But I am really don’t know whether the version is dap disabled or not. Sorry, I could not help you in this regard.

Thank you Sadia. I solved my problem by using netcdf 3.6.3 along with my other configuration.


NetCDF Version 4.1 and later also split the Fortran interfaces into a separate library libnetcdff.a As a result, much compatiblity with the infrastructure (Makefiles, etc.) is broken: you must modify all Makefiles, replacing -lnetcdf with -lnetcdff -lnetcdf . If you don’t build netCDF as indicated above, you will need additional libraries that may be discovered by running the netCDF commands

nc-config --libs
nf-config --libs

Alternatively, netCDF 3.something did not split out separate Fortran and C libraries…
