Description Susi Lehtola 2018-04-04 10:14:16 UTC
The HDF5 library hasn't been built with the --enable-threadsafe configuration option.

Because of this, HDF5 isn't usable within parallel programs - one gets very weird HDF5 errors.

Please compile HDF5 with with the --enable-threadsafe configuration option, see

Comment 1 Susi Lehtola 2018-04-07 13:25:02 UTC
Actually, now I realize that hdf5 does no support threaded environments in any way. The thread safety flag just locks the library for a single process, turning parallel programs into sequential ones. Amazing....
