    cd <top HDF5 source code directory>
    ./configure --prefix=<location for HDF5 software> 
    make 2>&1 make.out
    make check >2>&1 check.out
    make install 



Use 2>&1 rather than >& to redirect both stdout and stderr to a file. That way issues from the OS, shell or compiler will be included in the output file.

If the tests fail, you can run the tests with the -i option to ignore errors:  make -i check >& check.out

To clean up the tests so that they can be rerun, type: make check-clean

You can see how many tests pass or fail, as follows:

$ grep -c FAIL check.out
$ grep -c PASS check.out
