Problems with CCP4 version 4.0.1

Installation problems

  1. X server crash due to xdl_view_library
    CCP4 Version : 4.0.1
    System : All
    Level : Information
    Status : Fixed

    Dave Love has prepared a new version of the xdl_view libraries, which should solve problems with crashes against various X servers, and linking problems with the shared version of the library.

    The code and documentation can be obtained from the prerelease area, in the file libxdl_view.tar.gz.

  2. cif_mmdic.lib gets deleted
    CCP4 Version : 4.0.1
    System : All
    Level : Serious
    Status : Fixed

    cif_mmdic.lib: this file is needed by some of the programs (e.g. TRUNCATE) but will be deleted by running make realclean.

    Edit the realclean target in $CCP4/lib/ccif/Makefile to remove the reference to cif_mmdic.lib. Then goto $CCP4/lib/ccif and run make.

  3. ccif compilation problem
    CCP4 Version : 4.0.1
    System : Linux Red Hat
    Level : Serious
    Status : Fixed

    There is a reported problem when compiling cciflib.f under Linux Red Hat 6.0, giving an error of the form:


    size of file /ccp4/lib/src/cciflib.f is smaller or equal to given size
    of 1433572 !
    make[1]:***[libccp4.a(cciflib.o)]Error1
    make:***[libdir] Error 2

    New versions of the cif configure and Makefile.in files are available on the CCP4 prerelease server (in the subdirectory ccif). Replace the existing files in $CCP4/lib/ccif, then run make realclean before re-running the main configure script (i.e. in $CCP4) and try make again.
