Subject: [OMPI users] openMPI + Ubuntu 7.10 puzzling
From: Vincent Rotival (vincent.rotival_at_[hidden])

Hello everyone

Sorry to bother you all about that but I am quite lost with a puzzling
problem concerning openMPI + Ubuntu 7.10. I could not find similar
threads on the archive

I have been designing complex openMPI program with Intel Fortran
compiler for quite some time, and everything worked perfectly until this
morning, when everything seemed to fall apart.

Basically, if I try now even the (very very) simple program below in
Fortran 90

************************************************** **
program test
use mpi

integer :: mpi_err

call mpi_init(mpi_err)

print *, "HELLO", mpi_err

call mpi_finalize(mpi_err)

end program test
************************************************** *

This code will compile (mpif90 -o test test_mpi.f90), but gives error
messages at the level of MPI_INIT, whether I call it with
> ./test
> mpirun -np N test

I am using openMPI version 1.2.6 (but same bug occured with 1.2.5),
which I compile directly from the source from
<>, with F90=ifort with Intel Fortran 10.1
I have not updated ifort since about 6 months, the only change between
last time I used MPI are small Ubuntu updates..... I can give you much
more complex codes which worked perfectly one week ago

As a small comment, the ouput from ompi_info is also weird

vrotival_at_vrotival-laptop:~/Work/workbench$ ompi_info --all
ompi_info: Symbol `mca_allocator_base_components' has different size in
shared object, consider re-linking
ompi_info: symbol lookup error: ompi_info: undefined symbol:

but I hadn't looked at it before the bug

Has anyone else encountered this bug ? can it be relaed to recent
updates in Ubuntu (although I do not want to incriminate it at first)

I am upgrading my Ubuntu with the following repositories

deb gutsy partner
deb-src gutsy partner
deb gutsy main universe restricted
deb gutsy-security universe main
multiverse restricted
deb gutsy-updates universe main
multiverse restricted

If anyone has any advice it would be greatly appreciated (and would save
my PhD as a byproduct )

Cheers !
