Hi John, Thank you for fixing this; we're moving in the right direction! Looking at the config.log now, when configure is testing for hdf5, I see the following: configure:16382: mpicc -o conftest -g -O2 -I/soft/hdf5/1.8.12-parallel/intel-13.1/mvapich2-1.9/include -L/soft/hdf5/1.8.12-parallel/intel-13.1/mvapich2-1.9/lib conftest.c -lhdf5 -lm -lz -ldl >&5 /soft/hdf5/1.8.12-parallel/intel-13.1/mvapich2-1.9/lib/libhdf5.a(H5FDmpiposix.o): In function `H5FD_mpiposix_open': H5FDmpiposix.c:(.text+0xa8e): undefined reference to `gpfs_fcntl' /soft/hdf5/1.8.12-parallel/intel-13.1/mvapich2-1.9/lib/libhdf5.a(H5FDmpiposix.o): In function `H5FD_mpiposix_write': H5FDmpiposix.c:(.text+0x166e): undefined reference to `gpfs_fcntl' When configure is linking the libhdf5 test program, it is failing because of this 'undefined reference to gpfs_fcntl'. I am unfamiliar with gpfs_fcntl, but I found the following from a search on Google: https://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/clresctr/vxrx/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.ibm.cluster.gpfs.v3r5.gpfs100.doc%2Fbl1adm_fcntl.htm I appears that in order to use the libhdf5 you are compiling against, you will need to have netcdf link against 'libgpfs'. You can do this by adjusting your LDFLAGS to include '-lgpfs'; depending on where it lives, you may need to add its library path as well. Give this a shot and let me know what happens, thanks! -Ward On 4/17/14, 11:38 AM, John Blaas wrote: > New Client Reply: Trouble with building parallel netcdf > > Here is the config log after fixing the library linking. > > Still the same error > > checking for library containing H5Fflush... no > configure: error: Can't find or link to the hdf5 library.
