Description Lech Lobocki 2006-09-21 13:16:35 UTC
Description of problem:
improper directory structure

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install ncarg
2. rpm -q --list ncarg
3. ls -al /usr/lib/ncarg
4. ncargpath
5. compare the above

Actual results:

The directory layout  in the ncarg rpm package is incorrect:
Library modules go to /usr/lib/ncarg/ncarg/* instead
of /usr/lib/ncarg/*, as shown by the ncargpath utility.

Expected results:

library modules placed in /usr/lib/ncarg/

Additional info:

BTW, a newer version (4.4.2) of NCARG is available. Binaries
for Linux come with NCARG-dependent packages such as 
NCAR Command Language, ver. 4.2.0.a033. As this newest version
contains significant improvements over the 4.2.0.a032,
it would be highly desirable to have a consistent NCARG 4.4.2

Where can I get NCARG 4.4.2?  The web site
http://ngwww.ucar.edu/ng4.4/download.html points you to 4.4.1.

I'll look into the ncargpath issues...

Comment 2 Lech Lobocki 2006-09-21 18:30:29 UTC
Good question! 
I've got the binaries with the NCL package, but - you are right!
- the NCARG page currently gives access to 4.4.1. The 4.4.2 version
is offered only for Mac, and only as binary.
I guess they simply have not update the page yet - perhaps the best
idea is to contact Mary Haley at NCAR (haley@ucar.edu).

Comment 3 Orion Poplawski 2006-09-22 15:56:28 UTC
ncargpath fixed in 4.4.1-4.fc5.  4.4.2 should be up on the download page in a
week or two and I'll release it then.
