Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Linux opteron infiniband sunstudio configure, problem

My goal in having you try that statement in a standalone shell script
wasn't the success or failure of the uname command -- but rather to
figure out if something in that statement itself was causing the
syntax error.

Apparently it is not. There's an errant character elsewhere that is
causing the problem. FWIW, you should be able to run ./config/
config.guess by itself and get a single line of output with no errors
-- so you don't even have to test this in the larger context of Open
MPI's configure process. As you showed in an earlier mail, even that
doesn't work.

We get config.guess from when we make OMPI
tarballs. FWIW, here's the md5 and sha1sums from the config.guess
that I got from a 1.3.1 tarball:

13:57] svbu-mpi:/home/jsquyres/openmpi-1.3.1 % md5sum config/
6384bbc496ef6e69328a9a428c623cc5 config/config.guess
[13:58] svbu-mpi:/home/jsquyres/openmpi-1.3.1 % sha1sum config/
199adb16fc94e6cf62912be5fbb69a77214b33e5 config/config.guess

I would be pretty surprised if yours don't match. If they don't
there's some larger issue going on (e.g., filesystem corruption?) that
would also be pretty surprising.
