Hello :-)

I am a new user of mesa, I downloaded mesa and edited the file 
makefile_header already. I use gfortran.

I tried to install mesa and failed. This is how I did it: I go to the 
mesa direction, type './install' (without quotes) into the terminal, 
click the return button on the keyboard; The below is what I got in the 
terminal window:

checking if ndiff is installed ...
./install_num_only: line 50: utils/ndiff/bin/ndiff: No such file or 
no! running install_ndiff
ndiff installed in utils/ndiff/

building const package.

gfortran -fno-range-check  -fopenmp  -I../public -I../private

Would you tell me what to do with it? Any help is highly appreciated !

Thanks a lot :-)
