Subject: [OMPI devel] OMPI 1.4.5rc1 tested: MacOS/ppc and *BSD/amd64
From: Paul H. Hargrove (PHHargrove_at_[hidden])
Date: 2011-12-13 22:58:13

I have tried 8 non-mainstream test platforms, using their "/usr/bin/gcc"

MacOS 10.3 (Panther) on PPC:
    gcc (GCC) 3.3 20030304 (Apple Computer, Inc. build 1666)
MacOS 10.4 (Tiger) on PPC:
    powerpc-apple-darwin8-gcc-4.0.1 (GCC) 4.0.1 (Apple Computer, Inc.
build 5341)
MacOS 10.5 (Leopard) on PPC:
    powerpc-apple-darwin9-gcc-4.0.1 (GCC) 4.0.1 (Apple Inc. build 5488)
FreeBSD-8.2-RELEASE on amd64:
    gcc (GCC) 4.2.1 20070719 [FreeBSD]
FreeBSD-7.2-RELEASE on amd64:
    gcc (GCC) 4.2.1 20070719 [FreeBSD]
FreeBSD-6.3-RELEASE on amd64:
    gcc (GCC) 3.4.6 [FreeBSD] 20060305
NetBSD-5.1 on amd64:
    gcc (GCC) 4.1.3 20080704 prerelease (NetBSD nb2 20081120)
OpenBSD-5.0 on amd64:
    gcc (GCC) 4.2.1 20070719

On all but two I was able to configure w/ only a --prefix option, and
then "make", "make install" and "make check" w/o errors (where "gmake"
replaces "make" on the BSD hosts).

On OpenBSD I had to configure with --disable-io-romio, because the build
failed otherwise.
The errors are the same as I experienced with an older OpenBSD-4.6 on

On MacOS 10.3 (Panther) I experienced the following failure at "make" time:
> libtool: compile: gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I../../../opal/util
> -I../../opal/include -I../../orte/include -I../../ompi/include

Which is from the following in opal/util/path.c:
> #elif (defined(__APPLE__) && defined(__MACH__))
> for (i = 0; i < FS_TYPES_NUM; i++)
> if (0 == strncasecmp (fs_types[i].f_fsname, buf.f_fstypename,
> goto found;
On this system, it appears that MFSNAMELEN is the proper length (as w/
> $ man statfs | grep NAMELEN
> #define MFSNAMELEN 15 /* length of fs type name, not inc. nul */
> #define MNAMELEN 90 /* length of buffer for returned name */
> char f_fstypename[MFSNAMELEN]; /* fs type name */
> char f_mntonname[MNAMELEN]; /* directory on which
> mounted */
> char f_mntfromname[MNAMELEN]; /* mounted file system */
> $ grep -rl MFSNAMELEN /usr/include/
> /usr/include/sys/mount.h
By editing opal/util/path.c to make that change, I was STILL able to
complete the "make", reaching the following error linking ompi_info:
> /bin/sh ../../../libtool --tag=CXX --mode=link g++ -O3 -DNDEBUG
> -finline-functions -export-dynamic -o ompi_info components.o
> ompi_info.o output.o param.o version.o ../../../ompi/

Clearly -lpthread is needed "somewhere", but I didn't pursue this
platform any deeper.

In the unlikely event anybody wants to follow up on either failure, let
me know.

There were a fair number of warnings at build time on several of the builds.
I will report any that I find alarming IF/when I've had a chance to pick
through them.

Note that I've not *run* any MPI applications yet.
