Subject: [OMPI users] Building from the SRPM version creates an rpm with striped libraries
From: Peter Thompson (petert_at_[hidden])

I have a user who prefers building rpm's from the srpm. That's okay,
but for debugging via TotalView it creates a version with the openmpi
.so files stripped and we can't gain control of the processes when
launched via mpirun -tv. I've verified this with my own build of a
1.4.1 rpm which I then installed and noticed the same behavior that the
user reports. I was hoping to give them some advice as to how to avoid
the stripping, as it appears that the actual build of those libraries is
done with -g and everything looks fine. But I can't figure out in the
build (from the log file I created) just where that stripping takes
place, or how to get around it if need be. The best guess I have is
that it may be happening at the very end when an rpm-tmp file is
executed, but that file has disappeared so I don't really know what it
does. I thought it might be apparent in the spec file, but it's
certainly not apparent to me! Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Cheers,
Peter Thompson
