problems to download and install seadas 7.3.2

by fdelcourt » Fri Mar 03, 2017 8:51 am America/New_York

Dear all,

I had to re-boot my system and re-install all softwares, including Seadas. At the moment I'm using Ubuntu 14.04, on which I use to have an older version of Seadas installed. Now I'm having problems to download (by command or manually) and install the seadas_7.3.2_linux64_installer.sh. I don't have much knowledge about linux commands at the terminal (only the basic), so does anyone could help me step by step?

Here's what I was trying unsuccessful:

wget -t inf https://seadas.gsfc.nasa.gov/downloads/ | wget seadas_7.3.2_linux64_installer.sh

and

wget -O - https://oceandata.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/SeaDAS/installer/7.3.2/seadas_7.3.2_linux64_installer.sh

Thank you on advance

You are making things too complicated.  Assuming you have the  Required software,  in a terminal, just run:

wget https://oceandata.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/SeaDAS/installer/7.3.2/seadas_7.3.2_linux64_installer.sh and you should see something like:

Then you can proceed with the instructions. 

Where life does get complicated is that Ubuntu's git version does not work, so git will have to be installed from source following the previously posted instructions .
