hdf5: checksum error due to malfunctioning mirror

Reported by: ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt) Owned by: jochen@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.7.1
Keywords: Cc: tyson.brown@…
Port: hdf5

Description

hdf5 1.6.9 has been released. The hdf5 port is still at version 1.6.8. The distfile for 1.6.8 is no longer available at one of the master_sites:

http://www.sfr-fresh.com/unix/misc/hdf5-1.6.8.tar.gz

That URL does not return a 404 "not found" error like it should but a normal "everything's ok" 200 status code, causing a checksum error, as reported on the mailing list by Tyson Brown.

You may want to remove that master site from the hdf5 port to prevent this problem in the future, or work with the owner of that mirror to make it function properly (return a 404 code when a file is not found).

You may want to update the port to 1.6.9.

  • r51834: added download location to hdf5 and hdf5-18 for old versions
  • r51835: removed www.sfr-fresh.com and distfiles.macports.org from master_sites

This should resolve the checksum problem, if you clean out the bad distfile you received and try again:

sudo port clean --all hdf5
sudo port install hdf5
