I would say trying put Cygwin on the computer.

 

http://www.cygwin.com/

 

It puts a Linux like environment on Windows which includes gcc and g++.

 

Since you are setting up virtual clusters, why not just go ahead and setup a
virtual Linux cluster and be on to other things than trying to get it
compile on Windows?

 

In many distros, Open MPI is already included in their standard repository
so you would not even need to compile it.

Hey,

 

I installed a 90 day trial of Visual Studio 2008, and I am pretty sure I am
getting the exact same thing. The log and the picture are attached just as
last time. Any new ideas?

 

Regards,

Alex

Hi Alex,

When the attachment is large, you can set the email directly to me off the
list.

For the problem you got, the reason is that you are using MinGW, but not
Microsoft C/C++ compiler. Is that possible for you to just switch to
Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 or 2008? There are still many problems for
supporting MinGW at moment.

Shiqing

Hi,

 

I am attaching all the output text resulted when configuring for the first
time. I am also attaching a picture of the of the main area. My main purpose
of installing OpenMPI is to set up a set of "virtual cluster" on the Windows
7 machine, so I could get accustomed with the different settings, and so I
could try some small programs, before being allowed to work on the actual
cluster.

 

Note, this is the first time I am using a mailing list, so if I am not
allowed attachments, please tell me. I tried to keep them as small as
possible.

 

Thanks for your help,

Alex

Hi Alex,

Building Open MPI using CMake is the recommended procedure, you probably
should stick with it, and it has been proved working well on different
Windows platforms. The other building procedures are not well supported for
some time now, and they are deprecated.

For the problems that you got when building with CMake, it might because
some dependent headers/libraries are not installed. Could you please provide
the detail CMake error output, so that I can help you fix it?

Regards,
Shiqing

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
