Thanks for the feedback and info. I think we can install 1.7x for those users who don't want to deal with the warnings.

You might want to double check that it doesn't break ABI - hypothetically, those are equivalent (I think), but I don't know what liberties the fortran compiler and linker is allowed to take with those different forms.

For general use we deploy only the super stable release. We do have 1.7.x in
friendly-testing on some machines.

David, I don't think that change will break ABI so it might be worth patching
before deploying. No further 1.6.x releases are planned.

Any possibility of upgrading to the v1.7 series?

David (Gunter) -

Which version of Open MPI are you using?  It looks like the 1.7 series
does not declare the internal version (GREEK / SVN) in the Fortran
headers, so this shouldn't be a problem going forward.

Jeff Squyres is usually our Fortran expert for this sort of issue, but
he's on vacation until after the Thanksgiving holiday in the US.  So
please expect a modest delay in (properly) responding to your question.

We have a user complaining about warnings he is getting from his
Fortran 95 code.

The Intel compilers throw out this warning:

warning #7346: The CHARACTER* form of a CHARACTER declaration is an
obsolescent feature in Fortran 95.

The warning stems from the following two lines in <mpi
dir>/include/mpif-config.h:

  character*32 OMPI_GREEK_VERSION
  character*32 OMPI_SVN_VERSION

Can we simply change those lines to the following:

  character(len=32) OMPI_GREEK_VERSION
  character(len=32) OMPI_SVN_VERSION

What would break if that happened?

Thanks,
david
