I was updating hdf5-1.6.10 to the latest version hdf5-1.8.7-1.el5.rf, however I have a dependency issue. I have got an error
R-hdf5-1.6.9-1.el5.x86_64 from installed has depsolving problems --> Missing Dependency: libhdf5.so.0()(64bit) is needed by package R-hdf5-1.6.9-1.el5.x86_64 (installed) Error: Missing Dependency: libhdf5.so.0()(64bit) is needed by package R-hdf5-1.6.9-1.el5.x86_64 (installed) You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem You could try running: package-cleanup --problems package-cleanup --dupes rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigestThis is due to the mismatched version of hdf5.x86_64 (version 1.6.10-1.el5) and R-hdf5.x86_64 (1.6.9-1.el5).
To solve this is pretty straightforward, you have to remove the installed hdf5 and R-hdf5 totally and reinstall
# yum remove hdf5 # yum install hdf5 hdf5-devel
