I’m trying to install hdf5-1.10.5 with parallel mode enabled using openmpi-4.0.2 like this:
./configure --enable-fortran --enable-parallel --prefix=/home/guido/libraries/compiled_with_gcc-7.3.0/hdf5-1.10.5_serial
Everything went fine till I did make check and I got the following error message:
===Parallel tests in testpar begin jue dic 5 19:02:58 CST 2019===
**** Hint ****
Parallel test files reside in the current directory by default.
Set HDF5_PARAPREFIX to use another directory. e.g.,

mpiexec_mouruka.crya.privado: cannot connect to local mpd (/tmp/mpd2.console_guido); possible causes:
- no mpd is running on this host
- an mpd is running but was started without a “console” (-n option)
Apparently Open MPI doesn’t use mpd, but I’m not sure about it. So can hdf5 be compiled
in parallel mode with open-mpi? How can I do that?
