Summary0000501: /download/suse.php for openSUSE 11.4 - Open-MPI 1.3.2 is missing from the science repo
DescriptionThe instructions from [^] are no longer fully functional, simply because Open-MPI 1.3.2 has disappeared from science repo for openSUSE 11.4.

This came to my attention from this forum post: [^]
Additional InformationAfter looking into [^] and searching through the unsupported repos, the closest "reliable" source I could find was from the devel section of openSUSE. The proposed changes are to the following instructions:

  sudo zypper ar [^] devel:libraries:c_c++
  sudo zypper in openmpi=1.4.5

Then don't forget to change the other 1.3.2 occurrences on that page.

Note: I have not fully tested if things work with this 1.4.5 package.

Actually there is no need to use a package from non-standard repositories. OpenSUSE 11.4 ships with openmpi 1.2.8, and OpenFOAM builds against it without problems.

It might build with 1.2.8, but the OpenFOAM Team has been "advertising" Open-MPI 1.3.2 since the SuSE-RPM pack of OpenFOAM 1.7.1 was released: [^]

Perhaps a bug was found back then. But all I know is that the last google cache reference I can find about 1.3.2 being on the science repos dates back to 26th of February of this year, so it doesn't look like it was removed very long ago...

If I remember correctly I picked 1.3.2 since that was run-time compatible with 1.4 series so I could just run across machines those two versions. This isn't the case for 1.2.8 and I never investigated why exactly.

Does the binary run with that 14.5?

Tomorrow I'll be able to do some more tests, but for now all I know is that it seems to work in serial mode.

Tested 2 tutorials, which both worked successfully with 4 cores on a VM with openSUSE x86_64 11.4:
* incompressible/simpleFoam/turbineSiting
* combustion/fireFoam/les/smallPoolFire3D

edit: Interesting... I tried on openSUSE 12.1 x86_64 (also on a VM with 4 cores) with the exact same Open-MPI 1.4.5 from 11.4 devel and OpenFOAM 2.1.0 RPMS for 11.4 as well and those two tutorials also worked!!

I guess this report can be closed, since with OpenFOAM 2.1.1 and the given RPM instructions are only for openSUSE 12.1 and not 11.4.
