You should probably look at the README file that is included with Open
MPI -- it has instructions for compiling and installing Open MPI.
Additionally, there is quite a bit of information in the Open MPI FAQ,
particularly under the "Building Open MPI" section
(http://www.open-mpi.org/faq/?category=building).
 
Open MPI does not have lamboot, lamclean, wipe, lamgrow -- these are
LAM-specific commands. See the "Running MPI Jobs" section of the Open
MPI FAQ (http://www.open-mpi.org/faq/?category=running).
 
Open MPI does provide the C++ MPI bindings, typically without any
additional libraries (you need a functioning C++ compiler that is
compile- and link-compatible with your C compiler, of course).

        Subject: [OMPI users] getting started with openMPI
        
        
        Hi ,
        I am a newbie of openMPI.
        I was running LAM/MPI. I was able to buld latest version of lam
7.1.2.
        I am using RedHat 9(shrike).
        
        Do i need additional libraries to build openMPI? Can i just
build in a simple way as in LAM/MPI?
        
        Are there any equivalents of lamboot,lamclean, wipe, lamgrow
tools in openMPI?
        
        Does openMPI provide C++ support without any additional
libraries(on my system) as in LAM/MPI 7.1.2?
        
        Sorry for flooding with too many questions. I actually need to
make quick decision on OpenMPI. :-(
        
        Thanks in advance.!
        
        Regards,
        Imran
