Do I understand you right? You have case where you compile HDF5 serial but with MPI? Is this reasonable? If yes: In which cases?
yes that's right. I have vtkH5PartReader and vtkH5PartWriter which include H5Part.h and other stuff. Because we have problems with Parallel IO under NFS, I can use MPI to send data between nodes inside the wrapper code and then do the writing from H5Part serially.
Since We include MPI, and H5Part thinks MPI is not available as we are in serial mode, it has wrong type definitions. The easy fix is to put back the HAS_MPI and HAS_PARALLEL flag that I previously used and alluded to. I will send a patch once I'm happy with it.
