Installing UVCDAT on OSX 10.10.1

is a royal pita and has been giving me grief – I suspected that the precombiled binary tarball would not work, but found out that I was wrong.

From source, the build fails with an error while building the MANY ‘modules’ but installing from the precompiled tarball works fine, given that it’s designated for OSX 10.9. ┬áThat tarball wants to be unzipped into / so that the correct path is used, but it’s possible to unzip to ~/tmp and then copy usr/local/uvcdat to /usr/local/ and it will work OK.

The only thing needed then is to symlink the required libs

ln -s /usr/local//Cellar/gcc/4.9.2/lib/gcc/x86_64-apple-darwin14.0.0/4.9.2/libgfortran.3.dylib /usr/local/gfortran/lib/libgfortran.3.dylib
ln -s /usr/local/Cellar/gcc/4.9.2/lib/gcc/x86_64-apple-darwin14.0.0/4.9.2/libgcc_s.1.dylib //usr/local/gfortran/lib/libgcc_s.1.dylib
ln -s /usr/local/Cellar/gcc/4.9.2/lib/gcc/x86_64-apple-darwin14.0.0/4.9.2/libquadmath.0.dylib /usr/local/gfortran/lib/libquadmath.0.dylib
