Hi Mary,

Thank you for your reply. A newer NCL binary with Vis5D turned on will be great.

Below is the system info.

% uname -a
Linux 2.6.32-358.11.1.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Wed May 15 10:48:38 EDT 2013
x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

% gcc --version
gcc (GCC) 4.4.7 20120313 (Red Hat 4.4.7-3)

% cat /etc/*-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation release 6.4 (Santiago)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation release 6.4 (Santiago)

Thanks again.

Have a nice day.
