Subject: [OMPI users] More newbie question: LD_LIBRARY_PATH
From: Tena Sakai (tsakai_at_[hidden])

On a FAQ page (,
(under 1. What pre-requisites are necessary for running an Open MPI job?), I see an example
of LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable:
   LD_LIBRARY_PATH: /opt/openmpi/lib

When I compiled the source, a directory /usr/local/lib/openmpi was generated (with many
files in it). Given that, do I set D_LIBRARY_PATH to /usr/local/lib or do I set
it to /usr/local/lib/openmpi?

Thank you.
