Installation of hdf5-1.10.5 with parallel mode with openmpi-4.0.2


#1

Hello,
I’m trying to install hdf5-1.10.5 with parallel mode enabled using openmpi-4.0.2 like this:

CC= /home/guido/libraries/compiled_with_gcc-7.3.0/openmpi-4.0.2/bin/mpicc
FC=/home/guido/libraries/compiled_with_gcc-7.3.0/openmpi-4.0.2/bin/mpif90
./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.,
HDF5_PARAPREFIX=/PFS/user/me
export HDF5_PARAPREFIX
make check
**** end of Hint ****
make[4]: Entering directory `/home/guido/downloads/hdf5-1.10.5/testpar’

t_mpi Test Log

mpiexec_mouruka.crya.privado: cannot connect to local mpd (/tmp/mpd2.console_guido); possible causes:

  1. no mpd is running on this host
  2. 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?
Cheers,
