Subject: [OMPI users] Problems with mpicc-wrapper-data.txt
From: Ole Widar Saastad (o.w.saastad_at_[hidden])

I get the follwing error (it is more like a waring, the mpicc produce
output):
[olews_at_login-0-1 $ /site/VERSIONS/openmpi-1.4.3.intel.test/bin/mpicc
[login-0-1.local:14689] keyval parser: error 1 reading file /site/VERSIONS/openmpi-1.4.3.intel.test/share/openmpi/mpicc-wrapper-data.txt at line 1:
  # There can be multiple blocks of configuration data, chosen by
gcc: no input files

The /site/VERSIONS/openmpi-1.4.3.intel.test/share/openmpi/mpicc-wrapper-data.txt is read, verified by chaning it and noticing it's effect. It works fint, but many users are quite unhappy wit this error. I have used strace to see that all the characters get read (322 from strace and 322 from wc).
It looks like there is something internal in the executable

Is there a fix for apparently bug ? I searched the mailing list, but
most information I got was of the type configure/make clean/make/make
install and this is something I have tried before.

Background :

We have several installations of OpenMPI installed.

They reside at (showing mpicc location) :
 
/site/VERSIONS/openmpi-1.2.8.gnu/bin/mpicc
/site/VERSIONS/openmpi-1.2.8.intel/bin/mpicc
/site/VERSIONS/openmpi-1.3.3.gnu/bin/mpicc
/site/VERSIONS/openmpi-1.3.3.intel/bin/mpicc
/site/VERSIONS/openmpi-1.3.3.intel.ipath/bin/mpicc
/site/VERSIONS/openmpi-1.3.3.pgi/bin/mpicc
/site/VERSIONS/openmpi-1.4.1.gnu/bin/mpicc
/site/VERSIONS/openmpi-1.4.1.intel/bin/mpicc
/site/VERSIONS/openmpi-1.4.2.intel/bin/mpicc
/site/VERSIONS/openmpi-1.4.3.gnu/bin/mpicc
/site/VERSIONS/openmpi-1.4.3.gnu32/bin/mpicc
/site/VERSIONS/openmpi-1.4.3.intel/bin/mpicc
/site/VERSIONS/openmpi-1.4.3.intel.test/bin/mpicc
/site/VERSIONS/openmpi-1.4.3.open64/bin/mpicc
/site/VERSIONS/openmpi-1.4.3.pgi/bin/mpicc
/site/VERSIONS/openmpi-1.4.intel/bin/mpicc
/site/VERSIONS/openmpi-1.4.intel.icc/bin/mpicc

With corresponding modules to set up the correct path and library path.
set modulefile [lrange [split [module-info name] {/}] 0 0]
set apphome /site/VERSIONS/openmpi-1.4.3.intel.test
set appname OpenMPI
set appurl http://www.open-mpi.org

module-whatis "A High Performance Message Passing Library"

setenv MPI_TYPE openmpi

prepend-path PATH $apphome/bin
prepend-path LD_LIBRARY_PATH $apphome/lib
prepend-path LD_LIBRARY_PATH $apphome/lib/openmpi
prepend-path MANPATH $apphome/share/man
