Subject: Re: [OMPI users] OpenMPI build fails with "undefined reference to symbol 'opal_cmd_line_get_usage_msg'"

Try and "ls -l /home/alex/huji/ompi4/lib/libopen-pal.so.0" and "nm /home/alex/huji/ompi4/lib/libopen-pal.so.0" to ensure that the file is >0 length and that it contains valid symbols.

If it doesn't look back at the make output and ensure there wasn't some warning/non-fatal error in creating /home/alex/huji/ompi4/lib/libopen-pal.so.0.
