Subject: [OMPI users] inconsistant FAQ entries - building openmpi with sge and running openmpi with sge

The building openmpi with sge faq says :

 

For Open MPI v1.2, SGE support is built automatically; there is nothing
that you need to do. Note that SGE support first appeared in v1.2.

NOTE: For Open MPI v1.3, or starting with trunk revision number r16422,
you will need to explicitly request the SGE support with the
"--with-sge" command line switch to Open MPI's configure script. For
example:

shell$ ./configure --with-sge

After Open MPI is installed, you should see two components named
"gridengine":

shell$ ompi_info | grep gridengine
                 MCA ras: gridengine (MCA v1.0, API v1.3, Component
v1.3)
                 MCA pls: gridengine (MCA v1.0, API v1.3, Component
v1.3)

 

Specific frameworks and version numbers may vary, depending on your
version of Open MPI.

 

Under running with sge :

 

o verify if support for SGE is configured into your Open MPI
installation, run ompi_info as shown below and look for gridengine. The
components you will see are slightly different between v1.2 and v1.3.

For Open MPI 1.2:

shell$ ompi_info | grep gridengine
                 MCA ras: gridengine (MCA v1.0, API v1.0, Component
v1.2)
                 MCA pls: gridengine (MCA v1.0, API v1.0, Component
v1.2)

For Open MPI 1.3:

shell$ ompi_info | grep gridengine
                 MCA ras: gridengine (MCA v2.0, API v2.0, Component
v1.3)

 

I believe the building portion should be modified to be consistent with
the running portion.

 

Thanx,
