Hi Michal,

What shell are you using?  Please try using bash if you aren't already.  Ubuntu's default shell does not work well with our installation scripts.

Im pretty sure, that default Ubuntu (12.04 LTS) shell is "bash". So, there is nothing to change.

Those errors indicate that you are not using bash.  What do you get from

[plain]echo $SHELL

ls -l $SHELL

ls --l /bin/sh[/plain]

OK, there are my results:

$ echo $SHELL
/bin/bash
$ ls -l $SHELL
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 959120 Mar 28 19:02 /bin/bash
$ ls --l /bin/sh
/bin/sh

I just asked a few colleagues to install latest MPI library on Ubuntu 12.04 (64bit) PCs. The same problem all the time!!! So there is really something wrong with the install script. Please, let me know how to install MPI Lib on Ubuntu 12.04, which is definitely supported OS.

Hi Michal,

I have not received a reply yet, I'll check again and I'm also setting up an Ubuntu 12.04 machine myself to test this.

Hi Michal,

I've been able to replicate the problem here, but no solution yet.  I'm escalating this to our developers.

Michal,

This should be corrected in the latest version (4.1 Update 3).  Please test and see if it is now working.

James.
