Re: [vox-tech] netcdf installation problems

I get the following information when I try the make install:

snyderjm@snyderjm-laptop:/media/WRFDisk_$ cd lib
bash: cd: lib: No such file or directory
snyderjm@snyderjm-laptop:/media/WRFDisk_$ cd include
bash: cd: include: No such file or directory
snyderjm@snyderjm-laptop:/media/WRFDisk_$ cd netcdf-4.1.2
snyderjm@snyderjm-laptop:/media/WRFDisk_/netcdf-4.1.2$ sudo make test
[sudo] password for snyderjm:
make: *** No rule to make target `test'.  Stop.

I am trying to install Netcdf and am encountering problems with the installation.  Can someone give me some guidelines on how to successfully install netcdf on UBUNTU?  I tried looking at this website:


I tried to run ./configure, then make, tne make test, then make install but to no avail.  Can someone give me some additional instruction on how to install the netcdf so that I can get an include and lib directory like I am supposed to be getting?
