Hi, There's a better way to do this by just having different shared library file names and sonames for each of the shared library packages. Then the -dev packages can conflict, while one can install multiple packages using the different shared libraries simultaneously, not one-at-a-time as update-alternatives would do.
Note this would also allow simultaneous install of hdf5-tools and libhdf5-mpi-dev which is required to build several HDF5 reverse-depends, such as med-fichier. This represents a major regression vs. 1.8.6 and should be fixed as soon as possible. I'll work on a patch tomorrow and will post it to this bug. -Adam -- GPG fingerprint: D54D 1AEE B11C CE9B A02B C5DD 526F 01E8 564E E4B6 Engineering consulting with open source tools http://www.opennovation.com/
