Hello all,

I have been attempting to compile mpptest on my nodes in vain. Here is my current setup:

Openmpi is in "$HOME/openmpi_`uname -m`" which translates to "/export/home/eric/openmpi_i686/". I tried the following approaches (you can see some of these were out of desperation):

CFLAGS=`mpicc --showme:compile` LDFLAGS=`mpicc --showme:link` ./configure

Configure fails on:

checking whether the C compiler works... configure: error: cannot run C compiled programs.

The log shows that:

./a.out: error while loading shared libraries: liborte.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

CC="/export/home/eric/openmpi_i686/bin/mpicc" ./configure --with-mpi=$HOME/openmpi_`uname -m`

Same problems as above...

LDFLAGS="$HOME/openmpi_`uname -m`/lib" ./configure --with-mpi=$HOME/openmpi_`uname -m`

Configure fails on:

checking for C compiler default output file name... configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables

And...finally (not that all of this was done in the presented order):

./configure --with-mpi=$HOME/openmpi_`uname -m`

Which ends with:

checking for library containing MPI_Init... no

configure: error: Could not find MPI library

Anyone can help me with this one...?

Note that LAM-MPI is also installed on these systems...
