Dear Intel community,
I am trying to compile OpenMPI 2.1.2 with Intel parallel studio 2018 update1 as follows:
source /soft/intel_parallel_studio_xe_2018_update1/bin/compilervars.sh -arch intel64 -platform linux
CC=icc CXX=icpc FC=ifort LDFLAGS="-Wc,-static-intel" CFLAGS="-D_Float128=__float128" ./configure --prefix=/home/CC_DIPC/OPENMPI-intel
Configure fails with the following message:
== Compiler and preprocessor tests
*** C compiler and preprocessor
checking for gcc... (cached) icc
checking whether we are using the GNU C compiler... (cached) yes
checking whether icc accepts -g... (cached) yes
checking for icc option to accept ISO C89... (cached) none needed
checking whether icc understands -c and -o together... (cached) yes
checking for icc option to accept ISO C99... unsupported
configure: WARNING: Open MPI requires a C99 compiler
configure: error: Aborting.
I have also tried the -std=c99 option with no success.
According to the forum (https://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/intel-c-compiler/topic/791108) our version of binutils and OS could not be supported by Intel 2018 (OS: Ubuntu 8.04.2 LTS, binutils: 2.30-21ubuntu1~18.04.2). In fact, having a look at the Release Notes, it is clear they are not.
Has somebody succeeded to install OpenMPI with Intel 2018 update 1?
Any help will be appreciated.
