Hi, I find that this package has dropped JAVA support. And this change breaks the build of hdfview. Will the JAVA support be added back?

Hello again.

I have just tried to build the latest gnudatalanguage git, and it failed with a vast number of undefined variable errors in the HDF4/NETCDF area.

After some furtling around I was able to track down that in order to use the system NETCDF, HDF4 should be built with --disable-netcdf.

So: Is this likely to break any other packages that depend on HDF4? And if not would it be possible to make that the default?

Thanks Xavier, Looks like the problem was that though I had java-21-openjdk installed, the default was still java-11-openjdk. After changing that it has now built.

Hi James-T, for me it compiles well, I have the official jdk-openjdk from extra, check your java environment with archlinux-java status check https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Java

Looks like the javac error is back.

checking if Java JNI interface enabled... yes
checking for gcj... no
checking for guavac... no
checking for jikes... no
checking for javac... no

    Aborting...

I have problems compiling the package. Perhaps it is necessary to update the java dependencies?

I'm trying to compile HDF4 in another context. Despite patching configure.ac to find libtirpc the ./configure fails:

-- Looking for xdr_int - not found -- Looking for xdr_int in /usr/lib/libnsl.so - not found -- HDF4 XDR Library will be built -- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

respectively

Could not locate xdr symbols in libc or libnsl.

Has anybody occurred this error before?

I get the following error: checking whether the C compiler works... no configure: error: in `/tmp/yaourt-tmp-schmidan/aur-hdf4/src/build': configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables See `config.log' for more details see https://pastebin.com/HwT6D8aE

and config.log says: https://pastebin.com/n7xQuG9g

@eleftg Thank you for your suggestion. It turns out that my JAVA_OPTIONS were incorrectly specified in my shell startup file, and for some reason, they were being copied to the Makefiles during building, which was messing up. So now the package compiled fine, although I still had to use --disable-dependency-tracking.

@meriops No idea why this could be happening but can you try changing line 33 of the PKGBUILD to:

"${srcdir}/hdf-${pkgver}"/configure MAKE=gmake \

and then post back whether it worked?
