Subject: [OMPI users] Open MPI 1.6.5 "make all" fails on Win7 with "system cannot find file specified"
From: Don Warren (don.warren_at_[hidden])
Date: 2013-07-11 05:15:11

Hello, all,

I'm attempting to install Open MPI in a cygwin environment on Windows 7
(64-bit, but I think Open MPI is treating things like a 32-bit environment).

The command I used to configure Open MPI was
./configure --with-mpi-f90-size=medium -prefix=/home/Don/openmpi
F77=gfortran FC=gfortran

This allowed the configure script to finish without crashing out partway
through. (Omitting the F77 and FC flags *did* cause an aborted
configuration because of some sort of mismatch between 32-byte complex
types in C++ and Fortran...?)

I then attempted to run "make all", and the process halts with the
following error:
Making all in mca/backtrace
make[2]: Entering directory
process_begin: CreateProcess(NULL, /usr/bin/mkdir -p base, ...) failed.
make (e=2): The system cannot find the file specified.
make[2]: *** [base/.dirstamp] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `C:/FLASH/Utilities/openmpi-1.6.5/opal'
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

I am attaching {config.out, config.log, make.out} as requested in the
"Getting Help" page. Any explanation of what's going on would be greatly
appreciated. Advice on how to fix this problem would be even more

Thanks very much,
Don Warren
