Problem with Intel MKL ILP64

Hello,

I am testing some lapack routines from MKL library on our linux cluster running Red Hat Enterprise 5.4. The Fortran code works with both LP64 and ILP64 interfaces; the C code can only work with the LP64 interface. When compiling it with the ILP64 interface, I either get a segmentation fault or an error message similar to the following:

MKL ERROR: Parameter 4 was incorrect on entry to DGESV


My intel compiler is version 11.1.073 and my mkl library is version 10.2.6.038. The code is taken from Intel MKL LAPACK examples. One is listed at the end.

The command line used to compile and link the code is:

icc dgesv.c -DMKL_ILP64 -L${MKLPATH} -lmkl_intel_ilp64 -lmkl_intel_thread -lmkl_core -openmp -lpthread

Any idea what's wrong?

Thanks.

Ping

Hi,

ILP64 interface means that your integer parameters passed to MKL routineshave 64-bit (or 8-byte) size. So, you should replace all the integer variables/arrays in your programwith MKL_INT type instead of plain int.

MKL_INT is declared in mkl_types.h header file and equal either to int or long long int depending on the -DMKL_ILP64 macro. So, once again:
1) Add #include "mkl_types.h"
2) Replace "int" with "MKL_INT"

or for this example, You can just link with LP64 interfaces.
in this case You don't need to change the source code but just link with LP64 libraries
icc dgesv.c -DMKL_ILP64 -L${MKLPATH} -lmkl_intel_ilp64 -lmkl_intel_lp64 -lmkl_intel_thread -lmkl_core -openmp -lpthread
