Not a dumb question at all. :-)

I think the problem is your –L flag. Our mpif90 wrapper compiler should already know where to find the MPI library, which is located in wherever you installed openmpi. Your flag is trying to overload our settings and I believe is causing confusion.

So just eliminate the flag and I think you’ll find everything compiles just fine.

Hope that helps

Maybe the "dumb question" of the week, but here goes...

I am trying to compile a piece of code (NPB) under OpenMPI and I am having a problem with specifying the right library. Possibly something I need to define in a LD_LIBRARY_PATH statement?

Using Gnu mpich, the line looked like this...

FMPI_LIB  = -L/opt/mpich/gnu/lib/ -lmpich

I tried to replace this with...

FMPI_LIB  = -L/usr/lib/openmpi/ -llibmpi

to which the make responded...
mpif90 -O -o ../bin/cg.A.2 cg.o ../common/print_results.o ../common/randdp.o ../common/timers.o -L/usr/lib/openmpi/ -llibmpi
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -llibmpi
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Wrong library file? Setup or path issue?
