netcdf.h conflict with libnetcdf-dev

Bug #2020648 reported by Paolo Oliveri
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
libhdf4 (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

The package libhdf4-dev package provides netcdf.h in headers directory /usr/include/hdf.

That file conflicts with the netcdf.h provided by libnetcdf-dev package during compilation.

The developers of the package HDF4 foresaw an handling of this problematic by renaming the header file netcdf.h to hdf4_netcdf.h.

For example, the maintainer of package hdf4-devel in RHEL made this choice.

Is there a possibility to change the ubuntu release as well? I already did it temporary in my machine and everything goes fine.
