Subject: [OMPI devel] patch for building gm btl
From: Paul H. Hargrove (PHHargrove_at_[hidden])
Date: 2007-12-31 23:42:36

I tried today to build the OMPI trunk on a system w/ GM libs installed
(I tried both GM-2.0.16 and GM-1.6.4) and found that the GM BTL won't
even compile, due to unbalanced parens. The patch below reintroduces
the parens that were apparently lost in r16633:

r16633 | rlgraham | 2007-11-01 15:38:50 -0800 (Thu, 01 Nov 2007) | 3 lines

change all instances of ompi_free_list_init to ompi_free_list_init_new. Header
and payload data are specified separately at this stage.

The fact that this has gone unfixed for 2 months suggests to me that
nobody is building the GM BTL. So, how would I go about checking ...
a) ...if there exists any periodic build of the GM BTL via MTT?
b) ...if such builds, if any, experience the same error(s) as I
c) ...which GM library versions such builds, if any, compile against
d) ...if anybody wants to help setup an MTT for GM on my system (NOTE:
Jeff Squyres, Brian Barrett and George Bosilca all have existing
accounts on my cluster, though possibly expired/disabled).
