Subject: [OMPI devel] [PATCH] Better error reporting when failing to load a component
From: Arthur Huillet (arthur.huillet_at_[hidden])
Date: 2009-08-03 08:23:00


Hello,

I have recently started working on OpenMPI, and part of my job consists
in adding a new module to OpenMPI.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the people who have been
involved in writing
https://svn.open-mpi.org/trac/ompi/wiki/devel/CreateComponent as it was
very helpful.

Attached is a patch that calls lt_dlerror() in order to show detailed
information about what symbol is missing, when a component fails to
load. I needed it to find out what was wrong in my module and I believe
it can be useful to others as well.
