Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Configure and Build ok, but mpi module not recognized?
From: Brian Harker (brian.harker_at_[hidden])

Hi guys-

Still no dice. The only mpi.mod files I have are the ones generated
from my compile and build from source (and they are where they should
be), so there's definitely no confusion amongst the modules. And
specifying the fulls path to the correct mpi.mod module (like Gus
suggested with the -module option) gives no change. I am running out
of ideas and patience, as I'm sure you all are too! Perhaps openMPI
just doesn't play nice with my compiler suite and hardware
architecture...? Thanks for all the input!
