I'm working on setting up my 7.3 mirror locally now so
that'll get me a fix, thanks. But I am curious why the updated rpm's for hdf5 are
available in 7.2 if there's a known dependency error with openmpi. Is it just a
matter of waiting for openmpi in 7.2 to get an update or will this error continue to
EPEL does not have different repositories for 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3 etc,
it's only "7". Whenever RHEL gets an update that breaks dependencies
with EPEL (such as in this case), the EPEL package will need to be
rebuilt against the newest RHEL package. This will unfortunately mean
that the newest EPEL package will be installable only with the newest
dependant RHEL package. RHEL does try to keep these breakages to the
minimum, but sometimes these library version bumps are required.
As for whether there will be an updated openmpi in SciLinux's 7.2, I
don't know. You would need to ask them, but I'd guess the answer would
be "no". Upgrading to 7.3 would be your best bet.
