Subject: [OMPI users] Linux opteron infiniband sunstudio configure problem
From: Kevin McManus (k.mcmanus_at_[hidden])

Hi All,

As a complete beginner (to OpenMPI) I am attempting to build on
a Linux opteron infiniband platform using SunStudio compilers.

My build script looks like...


../configure x86_64 \
        CC=cc CXX=CC F77=f77 FC=f90 \
        CFLAGS=-m64 CXXFLAGS=-m64 FFLAGS=-m64 FCFLAGS=-m64 \
        --enable-static \
        --enable-orterun-prefix-by-default \
        --enable-mpi-f90 \
        --enable-mpi-threads \

Not sure why I need to put x86_64 as the first argument, just a lucky
guess after...

configure: error: cannot guess build type; you must specify one

...but I hit another problem...

--- MCA component allocator:basic (no configuration)
checking for MCA component allocator:basic compile mode... static
checking if MCA component allocator:basic can compile... yes

--- MCA component allocator:bucket (no configuration)
checking for MCA component allocator:bucket compile mode... static
checking if MCA component allocator:bucket can compile... yes
../configure: line 123247: syntax error near unexpected token `('
../configure: line 123247: ` { $as_echo "$as_me:$LINENO: WARNING: This component was selected as the default (direct call)" >&5'

Have no idea of why I should need an MCA bucket but it seems
to trigger a problem. If I hack out the parentheses I end up
hitting more parenthetic syntax errors.

Any suggestions gratefully received.
