#2037 new defect

HDF5's searches for hdf5 in the "usual" directories even when HDF5_DIR is set

Reported by: Roland Haas Owned by:

Component: Cactus Version: development version
Keywords: HDF5 Cc:


The code in passes HDF5_DIR as the "GUESS" (7th) argument of find_lib and eventually that argument is *prepended* to the list of "usual" directories in

local DIRS="$GUESS /usr /usr/local /usr/local/packages /usr/local/apps /opt /opt/local $HOME c:/packages"

This seems wrong. If a HDF5_DIR is given then the configure stage should fail if HDF5 is not found there. Otherwise the system would unexpectedly pick eg a system hdf5 instead of one from a module if the module was updated and its path changed.
