problems in compiling netcdf

Hi
I'm new to ubuntu.
I'm tring to instal netcdf as a prerequisite of WRF and while instaling it I'mfacing this problem

configure: netCDF 3.6.3

checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes

No one can help you if you don't follow the advice and examine config.log to see what happened when it attempted a C compilation. It would probably be best to use both CC=icc and CXX=icpc if you intend to use either. Almost certainly, FC and F90 would need to designate the same Fortran.
Does WRF build on a 32-bit installation? If you're new to Ubuntu but familiar with linux in general, why beat your head against the wall? If you didn't find evidence that this task has been completed with Ubuntu, advice here may not cover the gap.

Hi,

Beside config.log and OS can you give information about compiler version. Btw did you see this article http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/performance-tools-for-software-developers-building-netcdf-w...?

For the installation WRF you can check http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/wrf-installation-bkm-for-linux-with-intel-c-and-fortran-com....

Also just in case check permissions for the directory where you want to install netcdf.

Thanks.

Try this one:
Create script build_netcdf.sh:

"
#!/bin/sh
#INTEL_COMPILER_TOPDIR directory where Intel Compiler has been installed
export INTEL_COMPILER_TOPDIR="/opt/intel/Compiler/11.1/056"
#Setting environment variables for the Intel C++ Compiler Professional Edition for Linux
. $INTEL_COMPILER_TOPDIR/bin/intel64/iccvars_intel64.sh
#Setting environment variables for the Intel Fortran Compiler Professional Edition for Linux
. $INTEL_COMPILER_TOPDIR/bin/intel64/ifortvars_intel64.sh

./configure CC=icc CXX=icc F77=ifort F90=ifort FC=ifort

make check
make install

"
Change attributes for this script.
$chmod 777 ./build_netcdf.sh
And then run it:
$((./build_netcdf.sh) 3>&2 2>&1 1>&3 | tee build_netcdf.err ) 2>&1 | tee build_netcdf.log
or
$./build_netcdf.sh 2>&1 | tee build_netcdf.log

Yes it covers x86_64 installation. But it works on IA64 as well. Only if to build WRF v.3.1.1 on IA64 in serial mode
Then in the file configure.wrf you will find variable for the linker
LIB_LOCAL = -L/usr/lib -lmpi. -lmpi should be commented if you don't have preinstalled MPI library.

Unfortunately I cannot say anything about 32-bit Linux and Mac.
