[netCDF #OTC-268927]: compile errors netcdf 4.1.2

Hi Basil,

> I have compiled parallel netcdf 4.1.2 using xlf and xlc compilers on 
> bluegene/P  and os linux suse. The compilation was successful and I got all 
> the libraries, include files and executables (as for as I know). However, 
> "make check" showed the following errors:
> ================================================
> 2 of 25 tests failed
> Please report to address@hidden
> ================================================
> make[2]: *** [check-TESTS] Error 1
> make[2]: Leaving directory 
> `/gpfs/home/basitali/netcdf413_hdf186_zlib125/netcdf-4.1.2/h5_test'
> make[1]: *** [check-am] Error 2

> The makecheck.log file is attached for your review. I am wondering if these

I'm guessing the problem may be that you're encountering a bug in the 4.1.2 
version of netCDF, 
from this entry in the netCDF 4.1.3 RELEASE_NOTES:

                Fix bug that prevents netCDF-4/HDF5 files created with
                netCDF-4.1.2 from being read by earlier versions of
                netCDF or HDF5 versions before 1.8.7.

I may be wrong about that, but the error message in the file you attached 
indicated a failure
to open an HDF5 file, as described in the bug web page ...

> Please advise.

My advice would be to try either the 4.1.3 version of netCDF or the more recent C-netCDF and
the 4.2 Fortran-netCDF releases, building the C library first and then the 
Fortran library, following
the instructions here:

  For 4.1.3:

Sorry, but we lost our parallel-netCDF expertise when the developer got lured 
away last year, so
I can't answer the question about the parallel make.  I also see you're not 
setting the environment
variables MPICC, MPIFC, and MPIF77, as recommended in a address@hidden mailing 
but I'm not sure if that's a problem:
