GEMPAK is an analysis, display, and product generation package for meteorological
data. It is used at National Centers for producing operational forecast and
analysis products. GEMPAK consists of a large compilation of individual
programs which provide data access, computation and display capabilities.
GEMPAK can be built from source for a number of operating systems and with different sets of C and Fortran compilers. Open Motif and a host of X libraries are required in order to build from source. See the GEMPAK Installation page for the source code build walk-through and library requirements.
These archives will uncompress to a directory "gempak-7.3.2" which should be renamed to "GEMPAK7".
Binary RPMs are provided for three common systems (x86_64 linux64, i386 linux, Solaris 5.10 x86). RPMs have package requirements similar to the libraries needed by a source code build (such as libXp, libXt, libXext, etc.).
