Subject: [OMPI users] "Permission denied" during MPI installation
From: Linwei Wang (lxw4393_at_[hidden])

Dear all,

I'm new to MPI... I'm trying to install open MPI on my mac (Leopard)..
But during the installation (with the command "make install")
it keeps generating errors of "Permission denied".... Anyone has an
idea of the reasons?
Part of the output is like:

Making install in etc
test -z "/usr/local/etc" || ../../config/install-sh -c -d "/usr/local/
/usr/bin/install -c -m 644 openmpi-mca-params.conf /usr/local/etc/
install: /usr/local/etc/openmpi-mca-params.conf: Permission denied
make[3]: *** [install-data-local] Error 71
make[2]: *** [install-am] Error 2
make[1]: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1


Thanks in advance!
