Subject: [OMPI users] Install OpenMPI on Win 7 machine
From: Alexandru Blidaru (alexsb92_at_[hidden])

Hey guys,

This is my first time posting on an email list, so if I don't follow certain
protocols just tell me. Anyway, I am working at a research lab as a High
School Summer Intern, and part of my project involves installing OpenMPI on
a Windows machine to run some applications in virtual clusters. I tried
following the first two methods from the Windows ReadMe file, but none of
them work. For the first one, there are a bunch of header files cMake can't
find. For the second one, the cannot find the ompi-static.tgz tarball. The
set of files that I downloaded from OpenMPI can be found here (tried both
tars): http://www.open-mpi.org/software/ompi/v1.4/ .

I noticed however that the ompi-static tarball can be found in the
Subversion that i obtained this way:
http://www.open-mpi.org/svn/mercurial.php . Can anyone tell me what I might
be doing wrong? Or maybe more detailed steps? it's the first time I work
with OpenMPI or any similar technologies.

Thanks for your help,
Alex Blidaru
