Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Installation Problems with Openmpi-1.2.9

Hi Josh,
      Thanks for your advice. I went back carefully through my PATH
file and corrected that so that I compiled openmpi-1.2.9 with the
Intel compilers seemingly without errors. However, the simple test
examples wont run with the same error:
~/Desktop/openmpi-1.2.9/examples> mpicc hello_c.c
mpicc: error while loading shared libraries: cannot
open shared object file: No such file or directory
I get similar results with the other examples. Here is where I need help.
