Reason about so strict dependency from libhdf5-1.8.4 instead of just 1.8

Asked by Matteo Nastasi

Hi, I' m trying to backport newer version of libhdf5 from trusty to precise but netcdf depends strictly from Precise version 1.8.4.
Is it just a form of conservative approach or there is a specific reason to not have a deps from just a 1.8 version ?

Regards, Matteo.

There might be a dependency in netcdf on a specific version of the .so files, maybe (precise, 1.8.4) versus (quantal and later, 1.8.8 and higher).

If that blocks your work, you might consider also backporting the trusty version of netcdf to precise.

Can you help with this problem?
