Error compiling fcm_make_um

Reported by: scottan Owned by: um_support
Component: UM Model Keywords: UKCA
Cc: nla27@… Platform: Monsoon2
UM Version: 10.9


My UM model setup on MONSOOn has suddenly stopped compiling (first noticed yesterday 30 October). Originally on suite u-bb800 #95238, same error was reproduced on suite u-az529, which was known to function correctly. I suspect something has gone wrong with my configuration on the machine, given it has been reproduced across suites.

Please let me know if you can help.

Hi Scott,

I believe it is something to do with the PREBUILD, but I don't know what. I get this too and am aware of a couple of other people encountering this. I will contact the Met Office to see if anything has changed recently, but in the meantime a workaround of removing use of the PREBUILD should fix this.

In site/MONSooN.rc under the [[UMBUILD]] section replace

PREBUILD = {{PREBUILDS}}/fcm_make_meto_xc40_cce_um_safe_omp

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Hi Scott,

Just to update, that the problem was caused by a configuration change on Monsoon and the correct course of action is to not use prebuilds.

I shall close this ticket now.
