[Kst] kst2 can not open netcdf files

Hi Alex,

I'm not 100% sure, but I guess the netcdf library you're using may be compiled without support for HDF5, which is required for some netcdf files using this as backend. 
Generally speaking, if the netcdf utilities packaged by your distribution see the variables (try ncdump -h) then Kst should see them too. If it's not the case, you may have to find other packages or compile Kst yourself. Note that 2.0.3 is quite old and it is highly recommended to use a newer version (2.0.8).

Objet : [Kst] kst2 can not open netcdf files

Hi all,
I made a small test with the default code from netcdf examples:

When I open that file using the wizard, available data is empty except the auto-created INDEX.
This happens to me for every .nc file I'm writing, independet of old or new
(netcdf4) format.

However, the example file (netcdf4) from here:
can be opened.

When I try to open the hgroup example file:
kst crashes.

Any guess why I can't see the data in the file written by the example code?


my kst version is kst2.0.3 which is included in debian wheezy.
