Description Ben Webb 2008-08-06 19:44:08 UTC
Description of problem:
The R-hdf5 library is currently unusable, since it is built against hdf5-1.8.0 headers and the current HDF5 library is 1.8.1. HDF5 applications require that the headers and the library are at the same point release. Perhaps the R-hdf5 specfile needs to Requires: a specific release of the hdf5 package to catch this problem in future.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start up R.
2. Run the following:
> library('hdf5')
> hdf5save(fileout='ex.hdf5')
Actual results:
The HDF5 library reports the following, which crashes R:

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.
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 will suppress the warning messages totally.
Headers are 1.8.0, library is 1.8.1

Expected results:
HDF5 file ex.hdf5 is produced.
