compiling HDF5 parallel: : error: unable to link a simple MPI-IO Fortran program

What are the options to configure HDF5 parallel with Fortran via oneAPI.

./configure --prefix=/path/to/hdf5p-intel/1.14.3 --enable-parallel --enable-fortran --enable-build-mode=production --enable-shared 

 

Currently Loaded Modulefiles: 1) oneapi/hpctoolkit/mpi/2021.11 2) oneapi/hpctoolkit/compiler-rt/2024.0.2 3) oneapi/compiler-rt/2024.0.2 4) oneapi/ifort/2024.0.2

 

Errors out with:

checking for parallel support files... provided by compiler checking whether a simple MPI-IO C program can be linked... yes checking whether a simple MPI-IO Fortran program can be linked... no configure: error: unable to link a simple MPI-IO Fortran program

there is an error in your environment, according to the config.log you set:
I_MPI_ROOT=psm3

which should point to the installation directory instead.

@RobbieTheK 
you need to specify the compiler you want to use, otherwise the configure script will just pick up something.
please try with

export CC=mpiicx CXX=mpiicpx FC=mpiifx F77=mpiifx 

also you probably need -fPIC, e.g.:

export CFLAGS="-fPIC -O3 -xHost" FFLAGS="-fPIC -O3 -xHost" CXXFLAGS="-fPIC -O3 -xHost"
./configure ....

I tried those, see config.log. I've snipped the fatal errors for brevity.

checking whether a simple MPI-IO C program can be linked... yes
checking whether a simple MPI-IO Fortran program can be linked... no

Well this is embarrassing the modulefile had a typo after changing these values:

setenv I_MPI_OFI_PROVIDER psm3
setenv FI_PROVIDER psm3

 

I_MPI_ROOT was accidentally set to psm3. We need psm3 for our Mellanox InfiniBand mlx5_0 HBA cards.

 

It works now! Thanks so much.
