Hi Matt,

Did you build NCL from source code or download a precompiled binary? If downloaded a precompiled binary, which one did you download?

We don't have precompiled binaries specifically for Linux-based Cray systems, but from the seg fault, it sounds like maybe you downloaded the incorrect binary for your system.
