Subject: [OMPI users] configure options
From: Zhigang Wei (daniel.wei_at_[hidden])

Dear all,

How can I decide the configure options? I am greatly confused.

I am using school's high performance computer.
But the openmpi there is version 1.3.2, old, so I want to build the new one.

I am new to openmpi, I have built the openmpi and it doesn't work, I built and installed it to my own directory.
I use the following configure options,

./configure --with-sge --prefix=$MY_OWN_DIR --with-psm

but it won't work and failed with somelines like
......lib/openmpi/mca_ess_hnp: file not found (ignored)
in the output file.

I guess my configure is wrong, could you tell me the meaning of --with-psm, --with-sge, do I need to add other options? I guess the computing nodes are using infiniband, but how to build with that? If I don't have the su right, can I build it? What should I pay attettion if I want to build and use my own openmpi?

You see, in a personal multicore computer, building is so easy and mpirun the program without any problems. But in school's hpc, it fails all the time.

Please help. Thank you all.
