Installation

There are three ways how to install HDF5.

Distribution package

HDF5 is generally available as a package on Unix-based operating systems.

Automated installation by PETSc

PETSc offers the possibility to download, configure, and install HDF5. See the PETSc manual for further instructions.

Compile from source

If there is a need to compile HDF5 on your own machine, download the sources from www.hdfgroup.org/downloads/ and follow the instructions on www.hdfgroup.org/HDF5/doc

For the spectral solver, use the MPI compilers (mpicc instead of icc/gcc etc.)

A possible configure command looks like

> ./configure --enable-fortran --enable-fortran2003 --enable-codestack --disable-deprecated-symbols
> make
> make install
