Known Problems at Release Time

  • Several example programs in HDF5 source/java/examples will fail in “make check” when HDF5 built with Autotools has been configured with --prefix=<install directory path>.  This occurs because Autotools puts the path for in libhdf5_java.dylib, and the failed example programs attempt to dlopen in the install location which does not yet exist.  The problem does not occur when no prefix is given, and only on macOS platforms.

    The simplest workaround is to run “make install” before “make check”, which will insure that is found when needed by libhdf5_java.dylib.  If “make install” cannot be run before “make check”, running “make -I check” after the java examples have failed will allow running any tests that did not run following the java examples.  The output can then be searched to find “FAILED” for any tests that fail following the java examples.

Tested Platforms and Configuration Features

NOTE:  HDF5-1.10 requires MPI 3.
