Using openmpi-1.1.3b3, I've been attempting to build Open-MPI in
64-bit bit mode on a Mac Pro (dual Xeon 5150 2.66GHz with 1G RAM).
Using the following configuration options:
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/openmpi-1.1.3b3 \
CFLAGS=-m64 CXXFLAGS=-m64 \
The make goes fine, but in "make check" it hits an error in the "opal_if" test.
Searching the source code in opal/util/if.c shows that the error is
occuring with the
ioctl(sd, SIOCGIFCONF, &ifconf)
call never returning a valid result (I tried increasing
MAX_IFCONF_SIZE, but that didn't help). There's a comment at the top
of the file that mentions some compiler magic (align=power, etc.) for
the 64-bit PPC version, but I'm at a loss about using it on a 64-bit
Has anyone else had any experience with this?
(Note that 32-bit binaries compile and pass make check.)
