installation error

Post by haider » Thu Jan 17, 2019 5:26 am

Dear all,

I have a 10 node working cluster, on which GAMESS and Quantum Espresso are running. Now I want to install abinit in parallel.
when I run the command "./configure --enable-mpi"
it gives the results
Multicore architecture support ===

checking whether to enable OpenMP support... no
checking whether to build MPI code... yes
checking whether the C compiler supports MPI... no
checking whether the C++ compiler supports MPI... no
checking whether the Fortran Compiler supports MPI... no
checking whether MPI is usable... no
configure: error: MPI support is broken - please fix your config parameters and/or MPI installation

could you please help me to overcome this problem. My aim is to install ABINIT in parallel so that I can run it on 10 nodes having 4 core each.

if the mpi package is not installed in "standard" place, the configure didn't found it

you can use --with-mpi-prefix to point the MPI installation

what is the result of :

Code: Select all

which mpif90
