Can't find hdf5_hldll when building NetCDF to use with WRF

Post by hellmersjl » Fri Apr 22, 2022 6:40 pm

Hello,

Following the instructions here
I've built zlib (1.2.12), HDF5 (hdf5-1.12.0) and trying to now build NetCDF (4.8.1) but during the configure I'm getting a message that hdf5_hldll can't be found.

Does anybody know if there is a way to
1) Have NetCDF not require this library
or
2) Build HDF 5 so that this library exists
?

Thanks.

Joe Hellmers

Which version of WRF are you using 4.4 or 4.3.3?

This should help for HDF5

Also $DIR=$HOME/WRF/Libs for my instance. Change them for what you have in your environment.

./configure --prefix=$DIR/grib2 --with-zlib=$DIR/grib2 --enable-hl --enable-fortran
make
make install
make check
