Talk:Installation from source
Under step 2:
you can now use the CC,CXX and F77 environment variables and use a generic=1 keyword to generate a good default compile.generic file in $MIR/bin/localsys. However, the current install does not copy this by default to the compile.ARCH file, you will need to do this manually and test the compiler directives. For non-standard names for the compiler pgplot will have issues compiling with the correct compiler.
pgplot with gfortran cannot compile the GIDRIV and PPDRIV. Just comment out these in $MIRLIB/drivers.list and redo the installation with mir.install pgplot prog
For Macintosh OS 10.4 users, your fortran compiler and your C compiler must be compatible. Because we need to use g77, make sure your C compiler is gcc3. Here's how:
- find the version you are using: gcc -v
- make sure that you have gcc 3.3 on your computer: gcc ^D
- if the version is 4.0 and you have 3.3 on the computer, type: gcc_select 3.3
This should solve the compatibility issues.
