Hi Isabella,

PRECIS works "out of the box" on OpenSUSE 12.3. Please try that distribution for now.

Use of OpenSUSE 13.1 (or the most modern versions of Ubuntu, Mint, etc) has no advantage. The model will not run any faster on
newer Linux.

OpenSUSE 12.3 is still supported (i.e. the updates and repositories are still active) so it is not a huge step backwards.

I am sorry about these issues with Perl.

David

Hi David,

Thank you for your reassurance. To be fair, I tried on all linux versions (15,16 and 17) and it seemed to apparently run on Linux 16 and after I updated it, it failed to run. I will try to run on the older version of OPENSUSE again and see how it goes.

But for my real experiment, I m looking for PRECIS 2, which will then give me the most up-to-date information on climate change scenarios. I hope you will be able to release PRECIS 2 in due time.

Kind regards,

Khandu

Dear Isabella,


Please can you try making the following edit to the file $SPATH/lbc_update ?

Change line 156 from
Code:
 foreach my $DIR qw(LBC_DIR PP4LBC_DIR) { 

to
Code:
foreach my $DIR (qw(LBC_DIR PP4LBC_DIR)) {



Please let me know how you get on. If you confirm that this fixes the problen then we will make sure we change this for PRECIS2.

All the best,
Simon

Hi Simon,

thank you for the reply. However, we went ahead and re-installed OpenSUSE 12.3 directly, so unfortunately, can't test the script changes you suggested at the moment.

However, I notice that on OpenSUSE 12.3, the benchmark experiment also has a (small) deprecation issue in the relevant ".leave" file in ~/precis_exp/precis_output line 287:

Code:
281 Ancillary updating completed at Fri 27 Jun 17:07:56 BST 2014 
282 ---------------------------
283 Time taken by /home/precis/um/vn4.5/scripts/ancil_update:

285   
286   
287 Use of qw(...) as parentheses is deprecated at /home/precis/um/vn4.5/scripts/lbc_update line 156.   
288 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
289 LATERAL BOUNDARY CONDITION UPDATING ...


I'm not sure if its related, but another issue I am having is that the graphical runtime monitor window is not working (The Real time monitoring system states, "Graphical output not yet available" all through the simulation), so I am unable to see what is happening with the experiment. I tested CDAT and it works fine but just not with precis. I can't find the reason for this problem. Is there anything you can suggest please?

Again, I'm not sure if its relevant, but I note that there are some other warnings in the ".leave" file in ~/precis_exp/precis_output, eg "/home/precis/um/vn4.5/scripts/qsserver[877]: ct: not found" and "cannot access /home/precis/precis_expt/abcaa/*.gif":

Hi Isabella,
The deprecation error you see in the *.leave file, the error with ct, and the non-functionality of the monitor window are not issues that cause the regional model to fail. You can ignore those.
It's best if I can get access to your system via ssh or team viewer at this point.
Thanks
David
