I have found the .zip files at https://www.hdfgroup.org/downloads/hdf5/source-code/ not to be working for me, since it was causing problems when running “./configure” independent of the flags set and compiler used:
-had to run dos2unix for several files
-had to run “autoreconf -fi”
-still got the error “.in’ig.status: error: cannot find input file: `src/libhdf5.settings”
Could reproduce this for hdf5-1.12.0 and also happend with hdf5-1.10.5 (.zip downloads only ofc!).
Then found that downloading the .tar file and running “./configure” worked perfectly!
I guess this problem with the zip download files is not intended and therefore I report it.
my system: opensuse leap 15.1
I hope I didn’t miss any information and this is actually the intended behaviour
Unfortunately, I’m kind of newbish so if I missed to give necessary information, please let me know
