Hi, > Status changed to 'Confirmed' because the bug affects multiple users. > > ** Changed in: netcdf (Ubuntu) > Status: New => Confirmed Thanks for confirming this problem. We have been lately getting more Ubuntu users trying to install netCDF on their platforms, so a fix for this will really help us provide better support for them. --Russ > -- > You received this bug notification because you are subscribed to the bug > report. > https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/702565 > > Title: > The libnetcdf6 package should depend on HDF5 1.8.5-patch1 or later, > not HDF5 1.8.4, as it currently does.
