missing libhdf5.so.6 for paraview

Post by hadian » 2011/08/28 05:39:40

i installed paraview in CENTOS 6 using yum from epel repo successfully. however it needs libhdf5.so.6 for running that i can not find the required package.
[code]$ paraview
/usr/lib/paraview/paraview: error while loading shared libraries: libhdf5.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory[/code]

Might this download site be helpful?


The page does specifically indicate CentOS and EPEL. I hope this might help. Any paraview operating issue would be way out of my experience.

Or... better, run

yum --enablerepo=epel provides \*/libhdf5.so.6

and find which RPM provides this library then install that.
