Dear Andreas,
I’m trying to set up OPAL on my work environment here, but sadly my work computer runs Windows, which makes things more difficult. Have you had people using OPAL on Cygwin before?
I’m currently stuck on the step of installing H5hut. I think I’ve got all the prerequisites installed properly. The configuration seems to go ok. But in the build step I get an error: “Unknown type name ‘MPI_COMM’”.
If I add “include <mpi.h>” to h5_types.h, then this error goes away, but I think this should a be a configuration issue, I don’t think I should be messing with the source code. Even with this include line added, I get a later error that various “HSPset_xxxx_mpio” functions are not defined properly. It seems to be that the connection from H5hut to Open MPI isn’t working properly…
Sorry to bother you with issues like this. Is there a better way to get help, like a user forum or something?
Thanks so much,
