Now fixed. I installed java 10 and was able to reproduce your issue. Found two workarounds and picked the less intrusive one (increasing stack limit)

Thanks for reporting

Hm, I'm using java 10. The error occurs when the build script issues chmod on a copy of jre in these lines of build.xml: <chmod perm="ugo+rx"> <fileset dir="${release.dir}/jre" includes="**/**"> </fileset></chmod> Apparently, this tries to issue chomd with too many arguments which, in a shell, could be circumvented by using something like: find . --exec chmod {}.

I have no idea. Are you building with java 7? If yes, do you get the same error when building with java 8?

Build fails for me since the last update: .../hdfview/src/hdfview-3.0/build.xml:838: Execute failed: Cannot run program "chmod" (in directory ".../hdfview/src/hdfview-3.0"): error=7, Argument list too long Any ideas what's going wrong?

oops... Indeed, I apologize for that. Did a last minute change and forgot to update the checksum before committing. Will correct it as soon as possible.

the checksum for HDFView.desktop is wrong

The script can be only executed from whithin the package location. Instead of copying '/opt/HDFView/3.0.0/' to '/usr/bin/', the following script will do the job

#! /usr/bin/env bash

The HDFview developers have changed the download location and the file name from HDFView-beta-3.0.0 to HDFView-beta-3.0. Therefore, download and changing directory after unpacking fails. Could be also considered as an upstream issue because the use of three blocks (X.Y.Z) for versioning is kind of a standard.

hdf4-java has been replaced by hdf4. See

Oh, it's your request.
