Subject: [OMPI devel] OpenMPI 1.4.2 and PathScale 3.2 C++
From: Larry Baker (baker_at_[hidden])
Date: 2010-08-27 17:18:27


The PathScale 3.2 C++ compiler segment faults for optimization levels
higher than -O1 (-O2 is the default). This is for OpenMPI 1.4.2 — my
first attempt to compile using the PathScale compilers. I could not
find any -WOPT options to eliminate the error. I don't understand the
current state of the PathScale compilers. I think the company changed
hands since we bought the product and the last owner went bankrupt. I
think the name has been resurrected by the people that wrote the
compiler. They use the same name, but I get the impression that our
license is with a company that is gone now, not with them, so they
want us to buy a new license. Anyway, there may be a newer compiler
than 3.2 that does not have this problem.
