A lot of software is missing, so we need to provide ACML, GMP and Boost on our own. As an additional obstacle \$(uname -m) does not suffice to distinguish these machines from the amd64 machines running etchnhalf. So setting up an runtime environment automatically that works on all machines is a little more difficult.

Note: libboost-program_options1.35.0 should be installed on those machines.

Note: Everything has to be compiled in the project/theorie directory. We assume that you have set the \$PROJECT environment variable by hand pointing to your project directory, which should read something like /project/theorie/m/max.mustermann

Experimental description, but worked once for me, however, not well tested.

  • ACML: Use the newest version from AMD (type ACML in google) compiled with gfortran
Tested: acml-4-4-0-gfortran-64bit
  • GMP: Make sure that make check does not fail.
Successully tested versions up to now: 4.3.1, 4.3.2, 5.0.1
build/x86_64_jaunty> ../../configure --prefix=$PROJECT --bindir=$HOME/bin
    --libdir=$PROJECT/lib --enable-cxx
build/ia64> nice make -j 16
build/ia64> make check 
build/ia64> make install
  • Boost:
Tested versions here: 1.40.0, 1.41.0, 1.42.0
> ./  --prefix=$PROJECT --with-libraries=program_options
> ./bjam
Now copy the libraries from stage/ to ~/lib, where stage is a newly generated directory within your freshly installed boost.
  • MPToolkit
In order for the toolkit to find our own GMP need to setup LDFLAGS accordingly. Of course,

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="\$PROJECT/acml/gfortran64_mp/lib:\$HOME/lib" need to be set apropriately for both GMP, Boost and ACML for running our new programs. So especially important is ACML here and it will be something like \$HOME/acml/gfortran64_mp/lib. The other important path in our example is \$PROJECT/lib. Note: You should probably remove -march=native due to compatibility issues with the new clusters.

It is assumed here, that you have downloaded the toolkit to a directory named trunk
> export F77=gfortran
> export CXXFLAGS="-DNDEBUG -O3 -fopenmp"
> export LDFLAGS=-L$PROJECT/lib
trunk> ./configure --bindir=$PROJECT/bin
    --with-blas="-L$PROJCET/acml/gfortran64_mp/lib -lacml_mp -lacml_mv
    -lgfortran" --with-gmp=$PROJECT/include --with-boost=$PROJECT/boost
    --with-boost-program-options="-L$PROJECT/lib -lboost_program_options"
trunk> make -j 16
trunk> make install
The option --with-boost=... links to the boost directory and is very important.

Adaption to the new file server => binaries and libraries must not be located under \$HOME. I use \$PROJECT as "/project/theorie/Andreas.Holzner" (adapt as appropriate).

build/x86_64> ../../configure --bindir=$PROJECT/bin/$(uname -m) 
    --with-blas="-L$PROJECT/numerik/acml4.3.0/gfortran64_mp/lib -lacml_mp -lacml_mv -lgfortran"
