It's a bit confusing to work with two packages, but there is no beta4 of netCDF 4.0. There has only been one netCDF-4 beta release. The HDF5-1.8.0-beta4 release contains many changes and a few known issues. Until the issues are resolved it will not work with netCDF-4. To build netCDF-4, get the netCDF-4 snapshot release here: http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/netcdf/builds/snapshot/netcdf-4/ Also get the HDF5 release on that page (which is a pre-beta4 snapshot of HDF5 which works with netCDF-4). Then build according to the instructions here: http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/netcdf/netcdf-4/newdocs/netcdf-install/Quick-Instructions.html The HDF5 team have already been notified of the issues in beta4, and they will be issuing a beta5 release sometime in the next few weeks to correct them. At that time, netCDF-4 will be tested with their beta release. Thanks! Ed -- Ed Hartnett -- ed@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
