The OCSSW_DEBUG issue is on that was fixed in the last SeaDAS release,
I've just been negligent in getting out an update for the MODISL1DB.
You may either comment out the line as you've done, or define the
variable as 0 (zero).
Now, as to the ncdump error, it appears that the filename has some
non-printing characters appended to it as a series of "�"
I don't know if these are just an misinterpretation by the HTML representation
of the forum or if these actually appear in you error message on the terminal window.
In any event, the problem is with the filename. The modis_GEO.csh script splits the
input filename into a path and filename using 'basename' and 'dirname', then puts them
back together when calling the modis_timestamp binary - which is what is calling ncdump.
It may be possible that something isn't happy with that process within the script, but I can
imagine what that might be.
I also noticed that you listed your machine as being a 64bit system, and that the file you
downloaded was modisl1db_linux.tar.gz. Seems the online installation script is not properly
setting up the download for 64 bit systems - I'll have to fix that. You should download this
and explode the tarball in your modisl1db directory to ensure you have the 64bit binaries.
I should also address that path - quite a lot of modisl1db's in a row
