Precompiled binary compatibility

I am trying to use the precompiled Linux binary sets for the latest HYSPLIT release available on the website, and am having some issues with the Red Hat/CentOS versions.

Whilst I can get the Red Hat 6 version to work on a machine running CentOS 6, both the Red Hat 6 and CentOS 7 versions crash with segmentation faults every time when running on a CentOS 7 machine. Does anyone have any suggestions/advice on getting these to work? I have all the prerequisite libraries installed.

Also, is there a version available which is compatible with the latest Ubuntu LTS release (18.04)? The version available on the website states it is built with 18.10, which is an interim release now out of support.

Thanks for the help!

For anyone else that may encounter this: the Ubuntu 18.10 version can be run on 18.04; you will just need to ensure that GCC 8 is available on the PATH (prior to the system install, which is 7)
