Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Problems Compiling OpenMPI with Sun Studio 12
From: Terry Dontje (Terry.Dontje_at_[hidden])

Which version of the Sun Studio compilers are you using also which
version of OMPI are you trying to build. I am successful with building
OMPI with the Sun Studio Express release 200811 on Linux systems if I
don't use the C++ compiler. Prior releases we did suffer from some
issues. A "cc -V" will give you the exact version of Sun Studio you are

I noticed in your configure line below you don't have a space between
"--enable-shared" and "--enable-orterun-prefix-by-default ". Not sure
this has anything to do with your problem but it might cause unintended
