Subject: [OMPI users] Problems installing in Cygwin - Problem with GCC 3.4.4
From: Gustavo Seabra (gustavo.seabra_at_[hidden])

Hi everyone,

Here's a "progress report"... more questions in the end :-)

Finally, I was *almost* able to compile OpenMPI in Cygwin using the
following configure command:

./configure --prefix=/home/seabra/local/openmpi-1.3b1 \
                --with-mpi-param_check=always --with-threads=posix \
                --enable-mpi-threads --disable-io-romio \
                --enable-mca-no-build=memory_mallopt,maffinity,paffinity \
                --enable-contrib-no-build=vt \
                FC=g95 'FFLAGS=-O0 -fno-second-underscore' CXX=g++

I then had a very weird error during compilation of
ompi/tools/ompi_info/params.cc. (See below).

The lines causing the compilation errors are:

vector.tcc:307: const size_type __len = __old_size +
std::max(__old_size, __n);
vector.tcc:384: const size_type __len = __old_size +
std::max(__old_size, __n);
stl_bvector.h:522: const size_type __len = size() + std::max(size(), __n);
stl_bvector.h:823: const size_type __len = size() + std::max(size(), __n);

(Notice that those are from the standard gcc libraries.)

After googling it for a while, I could find that this error is caused
because, at come point, the source code being compiled redefined the
"max" function with a macro, g++ cannot recognize the "std::max" that
happens in those lines and only "sees" a (...), thus printing that
cryptic complaint.

I looked in some places in the OpenMPI code, but I couldn't find
"max" being redefined anywhere, but I may be looking in the wrong
places. Anyways, the only way of found of compiling OpenMPI was a very
ugly hack: I have to go into those files and remove the "std::" before
the "max". With that, it all compiled cleanly.

I did try running the tests in the 'tests' directory (with 'make
check'), and I didn't get any alarming message, except that in some
cases (class, threads, peruse) it printed "All 0 tests passed". I got
and "All (n) tests passed" (n>0) for asm and datatype.

Can anybody comment on the meaning of those test results? Should I be
alarmed with the "All 0 tests passed" messages?

Finally, in the absence of big red flags (that I noticed), I went
ahead and tried to compile my program. However, as soon as compilation
starts, I get the following:

/local/openmpi/openmpi-1.3b1/bin/mpif90 -c -O3 -fno-second-underscore
-ffree-form -o constants.o _constants.f
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Unfortunately, this installation of Open MPI was not compiled with
Fortran 90 support. As such, the mpif90 compiler is non-functional.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
make[1]: *** [constants.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/seabra/local/amber11/src/sander'
make: *** [parallel] Error 2

Notice that I compiled OpenMPI with g95, so there *should* be
Fortran95 support... Any ideas on what could be going wrong?

Thank you very much,
Gustavo.
