How can I install IOIPSL and the rebuild tool?
- If you are using an up-to-date version of the install.sh script to install the model, then you already have an updated version of the IOIPSL library (in the modipsl/lib directory) and the 'rebuild' utility (in directory modipsl/bin). If it isn't the case, then it is most probably because your are using an old version of the install.sh script and you should retrieve the latest version and re-install the model.
- If you aren't using the install.sh script to install the model, then you'll have to install the IOIPSL library by yourself along the lines of the following steps:
## Prerequisites: the NetCDF library must be installed on your system
# 1. Download modipsl, the installation utility
svn co http://forge.ipsl.jussieu.fr/igcmg/svn/modipsl/trunk modipsl
# 2. Go to directory util
# 3. Extract IOIPSL (here the full version, in order to also get the
# 'rebuild' utility)
# 4. Adapt file AA_make.gdef. This is the tricky bit: this file contains
# all the definitions (where to find the netcdf library, which compiler to use, etc.)
# associated à to a given "target configuration".
# You can create your own "target configuration" inspired from the models already
# available, or by adapting a pre-existing one (in what follows, we'll assume that the
# "gfortran" "target configuration" will be used
# 5. Install the IOIPSL files
./ins_make -t "gfortran" -p I4R8
# 6. Compile the IOIPSL library
# If all went well, the libioipsl.a library and associated modules
# are in the modipsl/lib directory
# 7. Compile the rebuild tool (to be able to recombine outputs in MPI mode)
# If all went well, the 'rebuild' utility (and ancillary 'flio_rbld')
# is in the modipsl/bin directory
