New member

Can anyone please help me with this problem i fave,

i try to run the wrf, and got this error of mismatched library, the 1.8 version is a default version in my server where i run the program. i have this 1.12 version which i have in my coawst folder and i used proper env variable to set the path.
Can anyone suggest a way to overcome this issue please.

Warning! ***HDF5 library version mismatched error***
The HDF5 header files used to compile this application do not match
the version used by the HDF5 library to which this application is linked.
Data corruption or segmentation faults may occur if the application continues.
This can happen when an application was compiled by one version of HDF5 but
linked with a different version of static or shared HDF5 library.
You should recompile the application or check your shared library related
settings such as 'LD_LIBRARY_PATH'.
You can, at your own risk, disable this warning by setting the environment
variable 'HDF5_DISABLE_VERSION_CHECK' to a value of '1'.
Setting it to 2 or higher will suppress the warning messages totally.
Headers are 1.12.0, library is 1.8.12
Are you using some sort of dual-booting (e.g., using a Windows machine with Linux built in parallel to Windows)? If so, it's possible some of the Windows settings are overwriting some of the intended settings. Regardless, I would suggest talking to a systems administrator at your institution to see if they are able to help and make sure you're pointing to the right HDF5 path.
