Re: netcdf-4 alpha 14 and hdf5 1.8.0 alpha3


I'm having the exact same problem. It seems to me that the file to be
included (H5DS.h) simply isn't part of hdf5-1.8.0-alpha3 as it should
be. It is nowhere to be found. On the website of the HDF5 group it is
announced to be a part of the official 1.8 release:
I can't seem to find it in any earlier alpha versions, either. Anyone
had success building netcdf4 who can tell whether the file H5DS.h exists
on their system?

Sincerly, Ilmar Wilbers

        Hi all:  Has anyone had success compiling netcdf-4 alpha against
        1.8.0 alpha?  Looks like netCDF 4 is looking for H5DS.h, but
        it's now 
        called H5DSpublic.h.  Changing the include in nc4hdf.c fixes
        that error, 
        but then I get:
        if /bin/sh ../libtool --tag=CC --mode=compile gcc
        -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I.

        - -c -o nc4hdf.lo nc4hdf.c; \
        then mv -f "$depbase.Tpo" "$depbase.Plo"; else rm -f
        exit 1; fi
        libtool: compile:  gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I..
