The config.log you sent doesn't show that CPPFLAGS or LDFLAGS were successfully set. There is a section at the end of config.log listing all the environment variables that the configure script can see, and it includes ## ----------------- ## ## Output variables. ## ## ----------------- ## ... CPPFLAGS='' ... LDFLAGS='' I'm not sure why your setting these variables in tcsh isn't working for the configure script, but that's why the installed HDF5 library isn't being found. One possibility is that you're running the configure script as the root user, perhaps with "sudo", which would not inherit some environment variable settings made as a non-root user. This used to be in the netCDF C installation instructions, but it seems to have been omitted in the current documentation. Similar instructions are in the netCDF-Fortran installation documentation: If you set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH (or DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH) environment variable [...], don't use the "sudo" command before the following "configure" or "make check" commands. Using "sudo" causes the LD_* environment variables to be ignored, as a security precaution. You can use "sudo make install" as the last step, but you shouldn't need to use "sudo" before that. -Russ > address@hidden> wrote: > > > I wrote: > > > Try instead > > > > > > setenv CPPFLAGS -I/usr/local/include > > > setenv LDFLAGS -L/usr/local/lib > > > > > > That should work, followed by "make check" and "sudo make install". > > > > but of course you still need to run > > > > ./configure --prefix=/usr/local > > > > before running "make check; sudo make install" or just "make check > > install" if > > you set --prefix=... a directory that you have permission to write. > > > > --Russ > > > > > > Russ Rew UCAR Unidata Program > > address@hidden http://www.unidata.ucar.edu > > > > > > > > Ticket Details > > =================== > > Ticket ID: ENG-687406 > > Department: Support netCDF > > Priority: Normal > > Status: Closed > > > > > > > -- > Grace Peng, PhD > Atmospheric & Geoscience Research Data Archive > Computational & Information Systems Laboratory > National Center for Atmospheric Research > 303-497-1218 > > Russ Rew UCAR Unidata Program address@hidden http://www.unidata.ucar.edu Ticket Details =================== Ticket ID: ENG-687406 Department: Support netCDF Priority: Normal Status: Closed
