    Probably your umask was not 022 when it was installed. I'll look into fixing the install part of the Makefile a bit later. For now the easiest thing to do (other than using the rpms) is to install it by doing: make a prefix difectory that is owned by the user you want to install and run the server as. This can not be the root user. As the above user set your umask to 022 'umask 022' Install 'make install prefix=/your/prefix/directory' Run the server as this user 'ifpServer -t' or just ifpServer (which...

    The systemctl command only applies if you have used the rpms to install the gfe under the /usr prefix. The only meaningful thing it does is arrange for the server to start when the system boots. It will not work if the gfe is installed any other way. At least it will not work unless you modify things. You could use the file config/ifpServer.service as a guide in creating a service file for systemd to start a server running from some other location as another user. But again this is only required...

    Also, it may help to run the ifpServer with the -t switch at first. This prevents it from daemonizing and going into the background. It also causes error and status messages to go to the screen it was launched from which may help you see what is going on.

    There are two probles here. The first is that the GFE needs to connect to an X server for it to display it's windows. I know you are running this in a virtual machine. Is the virtual machine running an X server? If so, the normal value for DISPLAY of ":0" should work. But this should be for the user you loged in with. It is not necessary or even a good idea to run the gfe as the "gfe" user. Any user can run a gfe client. To test you have a working X settup try installing something like xterm and...

    There is no paid server involved. For model data one can download GRIB files from the NOAA NOMADS server. This gfe comes with a python package which will download these NOMADS grids and convert them for use by the gfe/ifpServer. The command is: gfei -m ifp.ingest Which is covered in the README. At the moment, the only supported models are nam and gfs.

    The gfe (client process) stores all of it's data using a server process (ifpServer). This ifpServer process can run on any machine you want. It can be the same machine you run the gfe client on. This is how I run it on all my machines (laptops, desktops tablets). So, there is no need to use a seperate dedicated physical machine for running the ifpServer.

    Oh Fedora 26 is brand spankin new. I've just pushed some code to sourceforge that works with the new packages in fedora-26 (gcc7, python3.6, etc). The plan is to realease version 1.10.0 real soon. It shoud compile with fedora-26 and have rpms for the same.
