Hi Jing

If you continue to have problems, please provide us with information about
the system (OS and CPU type) you are trying to install MESA on and the
compiler version (e.g. gfortran --verison).  We know that gfortran 4.3 and
earlier have problems with MESA.  gfortran 4.4 and 4.5 are OK as far as we

If at all possible, we would suggest that you install ifort and compile MESA
with it.  ifort produces binaries that are much faster and generally
supports the MESA code much better than gfortran.  ifort is not free but
intel does offer a free 30-day trial so that you can try it out and decide
if it is worth the money.
