Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] Error compiling
From: Ralph Castain (rhc_at_[hidden])

Should be fixed with r27716. We had reorganized the linking a little while ago, and the person who did it thought that the indirect references would be resolved - i.e., that linking against liborte would automatically resolve any calls to functions in libopal since liborte is linked against libopal. Sadly, this wasn't true for the Mac, and it looks like it isn't true for Ubuntu either.

Anyway, I resolved it by simply adding libopal to the list of libs for those tools. Let me know if it fixes this for you.
