Subject: [OMPI users] Open MPI 1.4.3 - Mac OS X 10.6.7
From: Paul Cizmas (cizmas_at_[hidden])

I am trying to install OpenMPI 1.4.3 on a Mac OS 10.6.7.

I have installed Gfortran GCC 4.4.4 and Absoft11.0.

It appears that I have i686-apple-darwin10-gcc-4.2.1.

When I run

./configure --prefix=/opt/openmpi1.4.3 F77=/Applications/Absoft11.0/bin/f77


./configure --prefix=/opt/openmpi1.4.3GF F77=/sw/bin/gfortran

in both cases I get the message:

It appears that your Fortran 77 compiler is unable to link against
object files created by your C compiler. This typically indicates
one of a few possibilities:

  - A conflict between CFLAGS and FFLAGS
  - A problem with your compiler installation(s)
  - Different default build options between compilers (e.g., C
    building for 32 bit and Fortran building for 64 bit)
  - Incompatible compilers

Such problems can usually be solved by picking compatible compilers
and/or CFLAGS and FFLAGS. More information (including exactly what
command was given to the compilers and what error resulted when the
commands were executed) is available in the config.log file in this
configure: error: C and Fortran 77 compilers are not link compatible. Can not continue.

I read the FAQ but did not find suggestions about this problem.

What should be my next step?

Thank you,
