configure with openmpi

Having trouble compiling the Yambo source? Using an unusual architecture? Problems with the "configure" script? This is the place to look.

If you have trouble compiling Yambo, please make sure to list:
(1) the compiler (vendor and release: e.g. intel 10.1)
(2) the architecture (e.g. 64-bit IBM SP5)
(3) if the problems occur compiling in serial/in parallel
(4) the version of Yambo (revision number/major release version)
(5) the relevant compiler error message

configure with openmpi

Post by sdwang » Tue Oct 05, 2010 12:25 pm

I want to compile yambo v-3.2.1 with openmpi-1.2.1, but I do not kown what is correct in ./configure.For example, I compile with mpich , I can type:
./configure --with-iotk=/home/sdwang/espresso-4.1.2/iotk/ --with-p2y=4.0 --with-mpi=/usr/local/mpich/lib/libmpichf90.a
But for opemmpi, I type
./configure --with-iotk=/home/sdwang/espresso-4.1.2/iotk/ --with-p2y=4.0 --with-mpi=/home/sdwang/openmpi/lib/libmpi_f90.la, it complaits:
>>>[Linking yambo]<<<
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/sdwang/yambo-3.2.1-r.448/driver'
yambo_driver.F
/home/sdwang/openmpi/lib/libmpi_f90.la: file not recognized: File format not recognized
make[1]: *** [yambo] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/sdwang/yambo-3.2.1-r.448/driver'
make: *** [yambo] Error 2

I do not kown what is correct in openmpi for --with-mpi=/home/sdwang/openmpi/lib/...(what I should write here?)

Thanks!

I have to admit I've no idea what an ".la" file is - is it a library file like ".a"? How do you use it when linking other (simple) parallel codes?

When I ls in directory ./lib, it include
libmca_common_sm.la libmpi_f77.la libmpi.la libopen-pal.la libotf.a
libmca_common_sm.so libmpi_f77.so libmpi.so libopen-pal.so libotf.la
libmca_common_sm.so.1 libmpi_f77.so.0 libmpi.so.0 libopen-pal.so.0 libvt.a
libmca_common_sm.so.1.0.0 libmpi_f77.so.0.0.0 libmpi.so.0.0.1 libopen-pal.so.0.0.0 libvt.fmpi.a
libmpi_cxx.la libmpi_f90.la libopenmpi_malloc.la libopen-rte.la libvt.mpi.a
libmpi_cxx.so libmpi_f90.so libopenmpi_malloc.so libopen-rte.so mpi.mod
libmpi_cxx.so.0 libmpi_f90.so.0 libopenmpi_malloc.so.0 libopen-rte.so.0 openmpi
libmpi_cxx.so.0.0.0 libmpi_f90.so.0.0.0 libopenmpi_malloc.so.0.0.0 libopen-rte.so.0.0.0

So what is the file I should use?

Dear Shudong Wang

maybe you can refer to the openmpi documentation. Looking at the ls of the dir I cannot really say.
