Dear All: I am trying to build the mpi version of gromacs-3.2.1 to work
with the local MPI on our Beowulf cluster (mpich-1.2.4 built on top of
SCore 5.4.0) and am running into the above linker problem. I get an
executable, but am given a "No such file or directory" message when I
Some relevant background:
Linux: 2.4.20-18.9smp (Redhat 9)
C compiler: gcc version 2.96 20000731 (Red Hat Linux 7.3 2.96-110)
ld version: GNU ld version 18.104.22.168.2 20020207
The sequential build with the same compiler and loader appears to be OK
(at least the demo and water test codes work).
The MPI build with fftw appears to be working OK (128x128x128 test on 4
The configuration used was:
./configure --disable-x86-asm --enable-mpi --program-suffix=_mpi
(I've tried disabling threads, building without X and a few other things
as well without success.)
This is an AMD Athlon system and either of the GNU gcc or Portland
compiler families are supported with MPI. I'm using gcc because I think
this builds better code than the Portland C compiler. The reverse is
true for Fortran, but that's not relevant.
Has anyone seen a similar problem before? Any suggestions?
Thanks very much.
