Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Unresolved reference 'mbind' and 'get_mempolicy'

Yowza; that sounds like a configury bug. :-(

What line were you using to configure Open MPI? Do you have libnuma installed? If so, do you have the .h and .so files? Do you have the .a file?

Can you send the last few lines of output from a failed "make V=1" in that tree? (it'll show us the exact commands used to compile/link, etc.)
