Subject: [OMPI users] Python Binding problem with openmpi-1.3.2
From: Evans, Thomas M. (evanstm_at_[hidden])

I've been using openmpi-1.2.x for 2 years to dynamically create python
bindings for my application code. I've just downloaded and installed
openmpi-1.3.2, and I now get the following error when trying to run python
with one of my bindings:

/data/python/current/bin/python: symbol lookup error:
undefined symbol: mca_base_param_reg_int

All of my regular executables work fine.

To build one of my bindings I use the following configure line:

mpic++ -pthread -shared -Xlinker
/Sn/build/debug/lib -o hybrid_wrap.o Database.o denovo.o
Mavric_Parser.o Source.o Mat.o Objects.o Map.o Viz.o Angles.o MC_Manager.o
WW.o Problem_Output.o -L/home/9te/work/Sn/build/debug/lib -ldenovo_kba_utils
-ldenovo_kba -ldenovo_source -ldenovo_material -ldenovo_angle
-ldenovo_database -ldenovo_meshing -ldenovo_utils -ldenovo_comm
-ldenovo_harness -ldenovo_release -L/data/vendors/gcc/trilinos/ompicxx/lib/

-L/data/vendors/gcc/hdf5/lib/ -lhdf5 -lz

I noticed on the mail archive a post related to this issue back in 2005 (
From: Jeff Squyres (jsquyres_at_[hidden]) Date: 2005-09-15 15:32:21);
however, I am assuming that this issue has been resolved since then. Is
there something I need to do extra? I know the symbol in question is
defined in, so it does exist, and mpic++ does include it on
the link-line. As mentioned in the older post, LD_LIBRARY_PATH tinkering
will not fix the problem. Any help is greatly appreciated.
