Error building openmpi with intel 18.0.3: Open MPI requires a C99 compiler

Hi,

I'm trying to build the latest version of openmpi (3.1.2) using intel 18.0.3 and the installation process complains about the compiler not being ISO C99. The error occurs for other versions of openmpi and intel (18.0.0 and 17).

Also, for what it's worth, I'm using the Fedora 28 with

1 $ uname -r
2 4.17.19-200.fc28.x86_64
3 $ ldd --version
4 ldd (GNU libc) 2.27

 

I've wrote the following simple build script which download openmpi-3.1.2, extract files and build it.

01 #!/bin/bash
02 set -e
03 INTEL_HOME="<path>"
04 source ${INTEL_HOME}/compilers_and_libraries_2018.3.222/linux/bin/compilervars.sh intel64
05 ifort -v
06 wget https://www.open-mpi.org/software/ompi/v3.1/downloads/openmpi-3.1.2.tar.gz
07 tar -xzvf openmpi-3.1.2.tar.gz
08 TopDir=${pwd}
09 mkdir -p build
10 cd build
11 ./../openmpi-3.1.2/configure --prefix=${TopDir}/install CC=icc CXX=icpc FC=ifort CFLAGS="-D_Float128=__float128"
12 make all install -j

You just have to set the path where intel tools are installed in the variable INTEL_HOME.

Running this script, I have the following output:

Same message than above, but with better formatting.

Hi,

Seems like your OS and Binutils are not supported by Intel compiler version 18.0. Please refer to Release Notes for details.

https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-c-compiler-180-release-notes

 

Thanks,

Viet
