I build it on Mac 10.6 every time we do an update to the 1.4 series, without problem. --without-xgrid or --with-xgrid=no should both work just fine (I use the latter myself).

You might also try downloading the 1.4.2rc3 tarball and give it a try. Offhand, I can't think of what the problem might be on your machine.

Cristobal, 

It may be a 10.6 vs 10.5 difference. In the configure --help output it looks like --with-xgrid=no should turn off the default behavior of building with support for xgrid.

this is strange, because some weeks ago i compiled openmpi 1.4.1 on a mac 10.5.6
and the parameter --without-xgrid worked good.

can you turn off xgrid on the macs you are working with?? that might help

Alan,

I haven't tried to build 1.4.x on os x 10.6.x yet, but it sounds like the configure script has become too clever by half. Is there a configure argument to force no xgrid (e.g., --with-xgrid=no or --enable-xgrid=no).

Hi guys, thanks,

Well, I can assure there I have the right things as explained here:

ompi 1.2.8 (apple)
/usr/bin/ompi_info | grep xgrid
                 MCA ras: xgrid (MCA v1.0, API v1.3, Component v1.2.8)
                 MCA pls: xgrid (MCA v1.0, API v1.3, Component v1.2.8)

ompi 1.3.3 (Fink)
/sw/bin/ompi_info | grep xgrid
"nothing"

ompi 1.4.1 (mine, for Amber11)
/Users/alan/Programmes/amber11/exe/ompi_info | grep xgrid
                  MCA plm: xgrid (MCA v2.0, API v2.0, Component v1.4.1)

So, my problem is "simple", the formula I used to compile ompi without xgrid used to work, but it's simply not working anymore with ompi 1.4.1, even though I see in compilation:

--- MCA component plm:xgrid (m4 configuration macro)
checking for MCA component plm:xgrid compile mode... static
checking if C and Objective C are link compatible... yes
checking for XgridFoundation Framework... yes
configure: WARNING: XGrid components must be built as DSOs.  Disabling
checking if MCA component plm:xgrid can compile... no

Any help helps.

Thanks,

Alan

Alan,

Are you sure that the ompi_info and mpirun that you are using are the 1.4.1 versions and not the apple supplied versions. I use modules to help ensure that I am using the openmpi that I built and not the apple supplied versions.

Hi there,

No matter I do I cannot disable xgrid while compiling opempi. I tried:

--without-xgrid --enable-shared --enable-static

And still see with ompi_info:

 MCA plm: xgrid (MCA v2.0, API v2.0, Component v1.4.1)

And because of xgrid on ompi, I have:

openmpi-1.4.1/examples% mpirun -c 2 hello_c
[amadeus.local:26559] [[63998,0],0] ORTE_ERROR_LOG: Unknown error: 1 in file src/plm_xgrid_module.m at line 119
[amadeus.local:26559] [[63998,0],0] ORTE_ERROR_LOG: Unknown error: 1 in file src/plm_xgrid_module.m at line 15

Using mac SL 10.6.3

Compiling 1.3.3 and haven't any problem.

Thanks in advance,

Alan
