[ncl-install] Instalation on Raspbian, wrong Architecture

Hi Felix,

Unfortunately, we do not have a Raspberry Pi-compatible binary release of NCL available at the moment. The Raspberry Pi’s CPU uses the ARM architecture, while NCL has historically targeted x86 and x86-64 CPUs.

Several people have recently inquired about Raspberry Pi support, and we’ve actually been trying to create an ARM-compatible build over the last few weeks.

For the time being, you may want to try the “ncl-ncarg” package available via the package manager on Raspbian, although that might not be the most recent 6.4.0 release of NCL. Otherwise, you could try compiling NCL from source, although we are still having issues compiling certain NCL dependencies ourselves.

Hopefully we’ll have a more official statement regarding ARM support in the near future.

Ive downloades the zip data through the Web Browser an used all the Shell commands, that are written athttp://www.ncl.ucar.deu/Download/install.shtml <http://www.ncl.ucar.deu/Download/install.shtml> . After testing this with "ng4ex xy01n -clean" the text " /usr/local/ncl-6.4.0/bin/ncargpath: Mistake at format of the programdata. Wrong Architecture." appears at the Shell.
