[Scalapack] installer freezes when checking mpicc (MPICH ch-p4mpd)


I tried to use scalapack installer 0.91 on a x86_64 PC with a linux
(openSUSE 11.0) using standard "factory" MPIs, LAPACK AND BLAS (i.e.
MPI, LAPACK and BLAS distributed as packages with the openSUSE).

I have succesfully built scalapack with openMPI. (Although I have not
tested it yet.) Then I tried to build scalapack with MPICH (using the
ch-p4mpd device). In this case the installer freezes when checking mpicc
(and also on a 32-bit PC). After a long waiting I interrupted the
process (the ^C in the line "Checking if mpicc works...^C"). See below:

# ./  --mpibindir=/opt/mpich/ch-p4mpd/bin
--mpif77=/opt/mpich/ch-p4mpd/bin/mpif77  --mpiincdir=/opt/mpich/include
--blaslib=/usr/lib64/libblas.a  --lapacklib=/usr/lib64/liblapack.a
Setting up the framework

MPI bin dir is  /opt/mpich/ch-p4mpd/bin
mpicc is  /opt/mpich/ch-p4mpd/bin/mpicc
mpif77 is  /opt/mpich/ch-p4mpd/bin/mpif77
MPI include dir is  /opt/mpich/include
Checking if mpicc works...^C
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./", line 25, in <module>
    frame = Frame(sys.argv[1:])
 line 107, in __init__
 line 375, in check_mpicc
    (output, error, retz) = runShellCommand(comm)
 line 68, in runShellCommand
    ready =, [], [])

I just add that I have succesfully compiled, linked and run another
application using this mpicc from the MPICH (also from the openMPI) on
the same machine. The MPICH is the version 1.2.7.

Cheers and thanks for your work.
Martin Konopka.
