You can run
make check with the
i option to ignore errors.
Alternately, you can set the environment variable
$HDF5_Make_Ignore to tell the hdf5 Makefile to ignore test errors and continue on. For example:
env HDF5_Make_Ignore=yes gmake check
make check, redirect the output to a file.
If a test fails,
make will print a message (echo
"*** Error ignored") and continue. Therefore, you can search the output for the string "Error ignored" to see if any tests failed.
