Re: Problem 'make'ing VisAD due to HD5 libraries: Update: kind of works in linux

Hi Tim,

To my knowledge, the instructions for installing VisAD on the VisAD FAQ should 
work.  I'm in the middle of some things right now, but I'll double check that 
as soon as I get a spare moment.  It sounds like your problems are stemming 
from the HDF-5 errors.  Please check to see whether your VisAD distribution 
included the ncsa/hdf/hdf5lib package.  If so, try to compile it with "javac 
*.java" in that directory.
