Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Problems building Open MPI 1.4.1 with Pathscale
From: Jeff Squyres (jsquyres_at_[hidden])

FWIW, I have had terrible luck with the patschale compiler over the years. Repeated attempts to get support from them -- even when I was a paying customer -- resulted in no help (e.g., a pathCC bug with the OMPI C++ bindings that I filed years ago was never resolved).

Is this compiler even supported anymore? I.e., is there a support department somewhere that you have a hope of getting any help from?

I can't say for sure, of course, but if MPI hello world hangs, it smells like a compiler bug. You might want to attach to "hello world" in a debugger and see where it's hung. You might need to compile OMPI with debugging symbols to get any meaningful information.

** NOTE: My personal feelings about the pathscale compiler suite do not reflect anyone else's feelings in the Open MPI community. Perhaps someone could change my mind someday, but *I* have personally given up on this compiler. :-(
