Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Configuration with Intel C++ Composer 12.0.2 on OSX 10.7.5
From: Gus Correa (gus_at_[hidden])

Hi Geraldine

I haven't had much luck with OpenMPI 1.6.4 on a Mac OS X.
OMPI 1.6.4 built with gcc (no Fortran), but it would have
memory problems at runtime.
However, my Mac is much older than yours (OS X 10.6.8) and 32 bit,
not a good comparison.
In any case, take my suggestions with a grain of salt.

1) I remember that you need to install X-code beforehand,
to have the right Mac development environment, header files, etc.
You can get X-code from Apple.
Did you install it?

2) With X-code installed, try to rebuild OMPI from scratch.
Do a "make distclean" at least,
or maybe untar the OMPI tarball again and start fresh.

3) There is some information that you can send to the list,
which may help the OMPI developers help you.
The config.log at least.
Check this FAQ:

4) If using the Intel compilers, I would try to keep the same
release/version on all of them, not mix 13.X.Y with 12.W.Z.
However, the error message you sent seems to have happened
very early during the configure step, and the
compiler version mix is probably not the reason.

I hope this helps,
Gus Correa
