Subject: Re: [OMPI users] configuration settings for Mac OSX

Hi Jeff,

Thank you for your feedback. In all cases, I installed it clean. After consulting the mpiBLAST user group, I learned that there is an issue building mpiBLAST with openMPI on Intel platforms and that it is being investigated. Once I learn more about it, I will post it here. I would still try to get mpiBLAST built on PPC (OS 10.4) using openMPI and I would appreciate any hints regarding settings for running ./configure.

Sorry for the delay on replying here.

Make sure that you are using the Open MPI that you have installed from
source and not the Open MPI that is installed by OS X by default.

Does that help?
