I’m trying to install to install the sra-toolkit from the source (I couldn’t find it in solus repository) following these instructions: https://github.com/ncbi/sra-tools/wiki/Building-and-Installing-from-Source
Among others, the sra-toolkit depends on libhdf5. I couldn’t find libhdf5 in the repo so I tried to build it from source. I did so in my Downloads folder, which was probably not the smartest thing to do since sra-toolkit can’t find that library when I run sudo make install in sra-toolkit directory. I get this error: NOTE – pacbio-load cannot be built: It requires our internal library ‘libkdf5’ which requires ‘libhdf5’ and its development headers.
I tried to add the libhdf5 path to PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH using
but it didn’t work. Any idea of how to get sra-toolkit find libhdf5?
