Thanks for your detailed reply. Now, let me go into some more details.

1) The first thing is even I am not so sure whether I am using LAS Version or Please see what I did to get the LAS tarred bundle.

I went to the following URL.
The URL is http://ferret.wrc.noaa.gov/Ferret/LAS/Downloads/

Then, I downloaded the latest version as shown below. I was not able to
get the files through CVS because it was impermissible for me.
download the latest stable version =

[cshaji@maud newlas]$ ls -alp las_6_5_1_2.tar.gz
-rw-------    1 cshaji   cshaji   50690827 Feb 14 09:54 las_6_5_1_2.tar.gz

Please clarify me what I got is LAS or How can I know
which version of LAS I am using?
I could see that the top line if README file only gives,
LAS (Live Access Server)

Am I using a wrong version or correct version? Please clear me this.

2) Even though I was not sure which version of LAS I am using, I just
followed the configuration steps. Initially it complained (as I mentioned
in my previous emails) about two Perl modules - Carp-Clan-5.3 and 
Time-HiRes-1.66. I have fixed these two. Then the installation was asking
it requires Ferret Version atleast Version 5.81. I upgraded Ferret to this
5.81 version.

3) After the above, I again started the configuration. Now it is
complaining about some las_servlet/las.war. Please see below what I am
[root@maud las]# ./configure
Searching for perl...
Location of perl executable [/usr/bin/perl]:

Starting Perl configuration script with /usr/bin/perl...

Can't find servlet WAR file las_servlet/las.war
Your LAS distribution appears to be incomplete. Please download a
complete LAS distribution, or try running 'ant dist' from the
las_servlet directory and rerun this configuration script
Please someone give me some better suggestions as I am facing this problem
for the last several days. I specifically would like to know if I am
following the correct latest version of LAS. Which is the latest stable
version ( or
If I am using the correct version, how can I fix the above error which I
am getting now.

I would highly appreciate someone help me on this.

Thanks in advance,

C. Shaji.
