A couple handy GrADS scripts

I call this script animall.gs. It's a general purpose animation routine that will work for any variable and any number of forecast cycles. The .ctl filename, # cycles, and desired display variable are entered via responses to prompts. The forecast cycles frames are displayed at 2-second intervals. N...

Re: WRF on AMD Sempron?

Try to find log directory into /home/chilimac/wrfems/util/benchmark/arw and inside log files (do that before you try to restart or clean-up the run). Then in log files try to find more information why run fails. If you find "segmentation fault" anywhere inside, it is too old CPU for these binaries....

Re: WRF on AMD Sempron?

OK, it is new one, so you must install 3.2 beta version using it. Did you specified version when you started installer? See ems_install.pl --help for details how to list available versions and chose apropriate one by specifying it as argument to ems_install.pl No, I didn't specify the version when ...

Re: WRF on AMD Sempron?

I'm pretty much sure that you used wrong installer script to install that version. That would explain why you miss this file. See my FAQ: That's a puzzle, as I used the script that was sent to me from SOO when I registered as a new user a few days ago. How can I tell if it's the latest script? Chil...

The install just finished. I'll report after I've run a tutorial as to whether WRF is happy with the Sempron. Chilima...

Re: WRF on AMD Sempron?

I used the command suggested by the WRF EMS website as well as the manual for an initial installation: >./ems_install.pl --install That got me the result posted in my initial post.
