Fixed. FindXDR.cmake is now patched through an ugly workaround in the prepare() function.

It's a problem with upstream hdf4 (packaged as a sub-archive in the current archive). CMake fails to locate xdr libs (error in FindXDR.cmake) and the build of hdf4 library is skipped (without causing an error!!)...

I fixed the exact same issue in hdf4-java but this one is much harder due to the perverse structure of the sources and the configuration scripts being called by CTest (!!)

Build fails when testing J4Unit-interface.

Caused by: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: Could not initialize class hdf.hdflib.HDFLibrary Tests run: 362, Failures: 360

OK I think I figured what was wrong. Removed the FindJNI.cmake module packaged in the archive in order to force CMake to use the official one.

Let me know if it works for you.

I have the same problem :
[glow@snowman ~/work/Total/drp/DRPPlugin]$ sudo archlinux-java status
Available Java environments:
java-8-openjdk (default)

Could you post the output of the following command ?

sudo archlinux-java status

I can't build 3.3.2-1:

-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!
CMake Error: The following variables are used in this project, but they are set to NOTFOUND.
Please set them or make sure they are set and tested correctly in the CMake files:

@Scindix @ canismarko Thanks to both you.

I'm sorry that I'm in vacation and can only update the package at the end of August.

`pkgver` needs to be updated to "2.13.0". "2.11" doesn't exist anymore.
Also some paths and commands needed to be adjusted to get HDFView working. Now it installs and runs perfectly. Below are the changes I made. Could the package maintainer review it and then update PKGBUILD?

Edit: To make things easier:

$ diff PKGBUILD PKGBUILD.upstream

I was not able to associate .hdf files with the HDF viewer (eg in nautilus). I managed to fix this by changing `exec ${HDFVIEW_APPLICATION}` to `exec ${HDFVIEW_APPLICATION} "$@"` in the HDFView file and `Exec=/usr/bin/HDFView` to `Exec=/usr/bin/HDFView %F` in the HDFView.desktop file.
