Subject: [OMPI users] A beginer's question
From: Hsieh, Pei-Ying (MED US) (pei-ying.hsieh_at_[hidden])

Dear OpenMPI group:

I am sorry about this newbie question, but, I was not able to find the
answer so far.

I compiled OpenMPI-1.2.5 from source on a OpenSUSE 10.3 64 bit OS.
Configure and installation seemed fine (using prefix=/usr/local). I
installed openmpi as root. But, when I ran a quick test program, I got
the following error:

saturn:~/openmpi/openmpi-1.2.5 # mpicc -o hello_mpi.c hello_mpi.c
mpicc: error while loading shared libraries: libopen-pal.so.0: cannot
open shared object file: No such file or directory
saturn:~/openmpi/openmpi-1.2.5 #

But, I found libopen-pal.so.0 in /usr/local/lib. How to get
mpicc/mpif90 wraper to find libopen-pal.so in the correct directoy?

Also, on another workstation (OpenSUSE 10.2 64 bit OS), I installed the
openmpi-1.2.2 rpm (and openmpi-1.2.2-devel rpm). Libopen-pal.so was
laced in /usr/lib64/mpi/gcc/openmpi/lib64. I has the same problem when
executing mpicc/mpif90.

Can someone shed some light on this? Thanks!

Pei
