Description Joachim Frieben 2007-09-27 16:07:14 EDT
Description of problem:
grace is not built with netCDF support even though the spec file
seems to implement this.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Rebuild grace binary package from SRPM.
Actual results:
checking for netCDF API version >= 3.0... no
--> support for netCDF is disabled

Expected results:
netCDF is enabled and the binary is linked against some netCDF library.

Additional info:
- extra link path in spec file is obsolete,
- xmgrace is not linked against any netCDF library; it only depends on

Comment 1 José Matos 2007-09-28 19:37:07 EDT
The new version of netcdf has shared libraries and it seems to have changed 
the signature for version. That confuses configure that wrongly states that it 
can not find netcdf.

I have patched configure to recognise the new version.

I have removed the (now) spurious line for extra lib.

I have added in the process the dependency for libXmu that configure also 
searches for and we have.

Grace build for F-8 in

I will use this spec file and backport the fix to F-7. In this case the new 
version will use the shared library for netcdf instead of the static version.
Comment 2 Joachim Frieben 2007-09-29 02:30:18 EDT
Good job, the package builds correctly now, and the binary actually does
depend on netCDF:

  libnetcdf.so.4 => /usr/lib/libnetcdf.so.4 (0x004fd000)
