Magma-1.5.0 Mac OS X Mavericks Installation Error

Postby pcall » Wed May 21, 2014 2:27 pm

I'm trying to install Magma 1.5.0 on Mac OS X Mavericks and am getting errors during compilation. I'm using gcc 4.9, nvcc 6.0.1, and gfortran 4.9. I've installed ATLAS and used the as a template for my My looks like this:

Code: Select all
CC        = /usr/local/bin/gcc
NVCC      = nvcc
FORT      = gfortran

ARCH      = ar
RANLIB    = ranlib

OPTS      = -O3 -DADD_
F77OPTS   = -Wall -m32 -O3 -DADD_
FOPTS     = -Wall -m32 -O3 -DADD_ -x f95-cpp-input
NVOPTS    = -O3 -DADD_ -Xcompiler -fno-strict-aliasing
LDOPTS    = -Wall -m32

LIB       = -llapack -lf77blas -latlas -lcblas -lcublas -lcudart -lstdc++ -lm -lgfortran -lifcore

-include make.check-atlas
-include make.check-cuda

            -L$(ATLASDIR) \

INC       = -I$(CUDADIR)/include

The error I'm getting when trying to compile is this:

Code: Select all
gfortran -Wall -m32 -O3 -DADD_ -I/usr/local/cuda/include -I../include -I../control -c lapack_strevc3.f -o lapack_strevc3.o
lapack_strevc3.f: In function ‘strevc3’:
lapack_strevc3.f:230:0: error: definition in block 267 does not dominate use in block 263
for SSA_NAME: _1088 in statement:
slsr_3977 = _1088 + stride.1_195;
lapack_strevc3.f:230:0: internal compiler error: verify_ssa failed

lapack_strevc3.f:230:0: internal compiler error: Abort trap: 6
gfortran: internal compiler error: Abort trap: 6 (program f951)
make[1]: *** [lapack_strevc3.o] Abort trap: 6
make: *** [libmagma] Error 2

Has anyone seen this error before, or have any idea how to fix this?

I recently upgraded to Mavericks and have been working through the various build issues. I have not seen this problem that you had:

Code: Select all
magma-trunk/src> gfortran -Wall -m32 -O3 -DADD_ -I/usr/local/cuda/include -I../include -I../control -c lapack_strevc3.f -o lapack_strevc3.o
magma-trunk/src> gfortran --version
GNU Fortran (GCC) 4.9.0
Copyright (C) 2014 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

I used the gfortran 4.9 binary from

However, you can try simply removing the lapack_*trevc3.f from src/Makefile and src/Makefile.src. The default version used in dgeev.cpp and zgeev.cpp should be TREVC_VERSION 4, which is magma_dtrevc3_mt, instead of lapack_dtrevc3.

===== Other issues

There continues to be an issue with MacOS's Accelerate/veclib framework. When compiling -m32, everything seems fine. When compiling -m64, single precision Fortran functions that should return float, such as sdot, snrm2, cnrm2, slange, clange, etc., are actually returning double. This can be fixed in the MAGMA header files and all the MAGMA *.f files, but correcting all instances is tedious. I'm working on a more robust work-around.

Since you used ATLAS, that should avoid the problem.

Currently, there seems to be a conflict between nvcc and Apple's clang compiler when using -m32. Using -m64 solves this issue (but then forces the previous issue).

Code: Select all
magma-trunk/magmablas> nvcc -m32 -c -o zlaset32.o
clang: error: unknown argument: '-malign-double' [-Wunused-command-line-argument-hard-error-in-future]
clang: note: this will be a hard error (cannot be downgraded to a warning) in the future
