Failure to install install_ocssw.py in MacBook Air (M2, 2022)

by mingyumingyu » Sat Jun 03, 2023 11:36 pm America/New_York

I am using Anaconda command line processor to install ocssw file from the MacOS terminal. The problem seems to be my Mac does not support the installation. My Mac is MacBook Air (M2, 2022), with 8GB memory.

python install_ocssw.py
unsupported Mac machine = arm64

Is there any alternatives to the installation of the OCSSW file?

Make sure you are using the latest ocssw installer. Download it according to the instructions on this page:
https://seadas.gsfc.nasa.gov/downloads/

Your file should be "install_ocssw" and not "install_ocssw.py" so my guess is you have an older installer file.

Also you don't run the installer with the command "python install_ocssw.py" but use the commands on the web instructions page.

For instance:
./install_ocssw --install_dir $OCSSWROOT --tag V2022.3 --seadas --modisa --seawifs

There is not a V tag that works on M2, but you can try T2023.8 - T2023.14.
