Subject: [OMPI users] Installation Problems with Openmpi-1.2.9
From: Amos Leffler (amosleffler_at_[hidden])

Hello Forum,
          Attached is a file of my installation and trying examples
for openmpi-1.2.9 which were not successful. Hopefully the problem is
a simple one and obvious to a more experienced user.

    I am trying to install and test openmpi-1.2.9. I found that I
could not use the Intel 11.0/.081 C++
and Fortran compilers although I think the problem is with these
compilers not openmpi. The openmpi-
1.2.9 did compile successfully with the internal compilers of SuSE
10.2. However, at the end of the
"make all install" command output I noted that some of the make
commands did not run properly as
shown below.
    I tried to run some of the simple examples and was not successful.
 For hello_c.c I received the
message "mpicc not found". Is there a simple workaround?
