Description Dennis Schridde 2022-02-26 13:49:42 UTC
After working around bug #833943, sci-libs/vtk-9.1.0 builds fine with sci-libs/hdf5-1.12.1-r1.  sci-libs/hdf5-1.12.1 is bundled with sci-libs/vtk-9.1.0 [1].  The <sci-libs/hdf5-1.12 blocker is no longer needed.


Reproducible: Always

    sci-libs/vtk: unrestrict hdf5
    The issue was never in vtk, it was in netcdf which has been
    fixed. Compiles without problems now.
