Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Fail to install openmpi 1.2.5 on bladecenter with OFED 1.3

You probably need to add --with-openib-libdir=/path/to/your/32/bit/
ofed/libs. I'm guessing that the system installed the 64 bit libs in
the default location and the 32 bit libs in a different location. If
that's the case, then --with-openib-libdir will tell OMPI specifically
where to look for those libs and use those instead.
