Hi Nashmil,

You need to install the openblas and zlib packages (as listed in the README.md 
file under `Build prerequisites`).

Please understand that there are many different Linux distributions and package 
managers out there. All we can provide is a list of required dependencies for 
ARTS. How to install packages for your specific distribution is something you 
have to figure out yourself. Distributions usually offer documentation or 
forums where you can learn how things work.

That being said, here are some hints to get you started:

I'm not familiar with Rocky Linux but understand that it is a derivative of 
RHEL. You should be able to install the required libraries with

sudo dnf install openblas-devel zlib-devel

The openblas-devel package is provided in the RHEL PowerTools repository (RHEL 
8/Rocky Linux 8). You might have to manually enable the repository if above 
command can't find the package:

sudo dnf config-manager --set-enabled powertools

Note that you need the -devel packages because they include the header files of 
the libraries. Just installing the library itself is not sufficient.

If you decide to switch to Ubuntu Linux, the required packages can be installed 
as follows:

sudo apt install zlib1g-dev libopenblas-dev

Hope this helps.
