Hi, md5sums don't match. Thanks for the package!

looks that it needs hdf5-1.8 which is not available in aur.
but there is hdf5_18 in extra

please, can someone fix PKGBUILD?

I think you can compile it with either extra/hdf5 or extra/hdf5-openmpi by adding this option before configure: export CPPFLAGS="$CPPFLAGS -DH5_USE_18_API"
Don't forget to remove the old link to /opt/hdf5-1.8 in the ./configure command.

There were another couple of declarations to fix, now I can save/read meshes in .med file format with gmsh. Here is the patch

I've been trying to debug med with hdf5 1.10. The main problem seems to be the switch from int (4 bytes) to long (8 bytes) for many hdf5 typedefs. Changing the various "int type_hdf" in med to "long type_hdf" fixes some problems, now gmsh complains "Could not create MED family x" with x = 1,2,... x=0 works.

This version of med (3.1.0) compiles fine with hdf5-1.10, but doesn't work properly. For example, gmsh doesn't create valid med file.
I recompiled the library linking to hdf5-1.8 and everything works fine. So I created a package hdf5-1.8 available at To be compatible with hdf5 on main repository, it installs libraries in /opt/hdf5-1.8.

I was able to build med with hdf5-1.10, but it doesn't work. I had to downgrade to hdf5-1.8

I added patches for a rebuild against hdf5-1.10. Should work now.

I'm getting the following error during compilation

<command-line>:0:0: note: this is the location of the previous definition
MEDequivInfo.c:27:1: error: conflicting types for 'MEDequivInfo'
MEDequivInfo(int fid, char *maa, int ind, char *eq, char *des)
In file included from ../../../include/2.3.6/med.h:143:0,

MEDequivInfo(med_idt fid, char *maa, int ind, char *eq, char *des);
Makefile:621: recipe for target 'MEDequivInfo.lo' failed
make[3]: *** [MEDequivInfo.lo] Error 1

Has anyone else run into this issue? I was trying to recompile med and gmsh after gmsh began failing to start (probably related to the recent upgrade of the hdf5 package to 1.10.0-1). I also tried compiling med 3.08-4, but got the same error.

EDIT: The med-salome package seems to patch this problem as I'm able to compile it. After installing this package, I'm also able to build and run Gmsh without a problem.
