Title: Global Array Toolkit (ga-5.0.1) installation problem on OpenSuse 11.3
Post by: Lika on September 07, 2011, 08:29:56 PM
Hi all,

I have some problem during the instalation of Golbal Array Toolkit version 5.0.1 on linux OpenSuse 11.3. Here is the part of the config.log considering the error:

configure:4689: mpicc -V >&5
gcc: '-V' option must have argument
configure:4700: $? = 1
configure:4689: mpicc -qversion >&5
gcc: unrecognized option '-qversion'
gcc: no input files
configure:4700: $? = 1
configure:4720: checking whether the C compiler works
configure:4742: mpicc conftest.c >&5
/usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-suse-linux/4.5/../../../../x86_64-suse-linux/bin/ld: cannot find -lmpi
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

As you can see the ld cannot find lmpi. The problem is mpi libraries are not in the folder where ld looks for it (/usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-suse-linux/4.5/). I found that mpi libraries are in other folder (usr/lib64/mpi/gcc/openmpi/lib64), so I made symlink to it:

ln -s usr/lib64/mpi/gcc/openmpi/lib64 lmpi

But it doesn't work again. I don't know what the problem is, and if I have correctly made symlink.
I would appreciate any kind of help.
Thanks in advance.

Best wishes,
