Re: [netcdf-hdf] HDF compile error

NOTE: The netcdf-hdf mailing list is no longer active. The list archives are made available for historical reasons.


I think HDF4 library on your system has NetCDF APIs defined and this creates the conflict.

Would it be possible for you to recompile HDF4 to disable NetCDF APIs?

Here is the configuration you will need to use

./configure --disable-netcdf --with-zlib=/path --with-jpeg=/path... (-- with-szip=/path....)

Please let me know if you have any questions.

I am trying to compile LIS-WRF (a coupled land-atmosphere model) on a Linux cluster using Intel Fortran 90 and MPI with NetCDF and HDF libraries.

This is the link command:

I get the following warnings:

/usr/local/other/baselibs/ESMF222rp3_NetCDF362b6_10.1.017/Linux/lib/ libmfhdf.a(var.o): In function `NC_var_shape':

What does this mean, exactly? Is there a conflict between HDF and NetCDF, or do I not have the right versions?

I can compile LIS only (without WRF) using the following command, and everthing works fine.

mpif90 -o /home/cbblanke/nobackup//LIS   A_BUNCH_OF_FILES.o

Any advice would be appreciated.
