I am tring to set up MPICH 1.2.6 on SLES 9 on itanium but I get an error during the configure script regarding the fortran compiler. Here is the info from the intel site on the fortran 8.0 compiler:
On Itanium architecture, Linux systems with glibc 2.2.4, 2.2.5 and 2.3.2 and kernel 2.4 are supported
SLES 9 has glibc version 2.3.3 and kernel 2.6. I could go back to SLES 8 but I really don't want to. Has anyone else run into this and if so, how did you get around it ?
