Hi Jakob,

I don't have access to a Debian system with gcc 4.1.2 anymore. That machine went away and they replaced it with one running gcc 4.4.5.

Have you tried the ncl_ncarg-6.0.0-beta.Linux_Debian_i686_nodap_gcc432.tar.gz binary?

As a test, before you download the whole software package, please try a file I put on ftp:

    <log in as "anonymous">
    <Use email address as password>
    cd /pub/scd/haley
    get ncl.debian.432

To quickly see if you can run this executable, type:

   chmod gou+x ncl.debian.432
   ./ncl.debian.432 -V

Let me know if you get any error messages.

As another possibility, if you can provide me with a logon to your system, I can probably build a binary for you in a couple of hours.

The solution at the time appeared to be a custom Debian build which Mary provided. I currently work on a remote system belonging to the German Weather Service (DWD) that runs on SUSE x64 with gcc412. It will run (ncl_521_Debian_686_nodap_gcc412) but (ncl_521_Debian_x64_nodap_gcc412) complains about unknown file versions in 64bit libssl and libcrypto, but at least displays the ncl prompt.
