MKL trouble with HPCC

MKL trouble with HPCC

I'm trying to compile hpcc using the mkl as the LA library but am running up against a roadblock.

This is what I am getting:

[15:41] user@NODE-00/lustre/user/hpcc-1.4.1 make arch=test
mkdir hpl/lib/rcac
mkdir: cannot create directory `hpl/lib/rcac': File exists

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

It appears to me that this line in the makefile

HPL_INCLUDES=-I$(INCdir)-I$(INCdir)/$(ARCH)$(LAinc)$(MPinc)

should, instead, have been

HPL_INCLUDES=-I$(INCdir)-I$(INCdir)/$(ARCH) -I$(LAinc) -I$(MPinc)

Without those -I prefixes, Make will issue a compile command with directory names in a context where source files are expected by the compiler. That is what is seen in the compiler error message.

I made the changes you suggested and did a clean make but am still getting the same error

Please make sure the changes you made are consistent. Namely you should have only added "-I" to the LAinc dir, since MPinc already had this prefix (MPinc=-I$(MPdir)/include).

Also this link may help you avoid some problems

The change was made but still running into the same error. I also went
ahead and removed the LAinc reference entirely just leaving it blank as
we do this for our other clusters as it isn't needed but was still
getting the errors referencing /opt/intel/mkl/include. So where exactly does the makescript pull that from if it is no where in the makefile?

So in going back through the guide that was linked Build MPI MKL FFTW library that the make file for that does not include an option to make the library against mvapich? Is there a way to make against mvapich or should I just give up on trying to use mvapich?

Okay so I realized that when you try and make hpcc it goes into the hpl directory as well and uses that make file to put together hpl. So I made a copy of the make file and put it into the HPL directory. I am however now getting the following error:

Steps to build wrappers for/link with MVAPICH2 should be the same as for MPICH2.

Yeah I caught that, still no dice though as now I am getting a bunch of errors with the compile not being able to pull math functions from the library and such. Also when I try to put together the fftw2x_cdft it complains about mpicc not being found however it is installed and working fine as per the code below:

mpicc is most probably not found because sudo does not preserve the PATH variable. You can check this by running something like "sudo printenv PATH".

In order for this to be fixed you need to

either pass the path to the MPI directory via the mpidir parameter of the wrapper's makefile,

or take special actions to preserve the PATH by sudo.

The second series of errors is because you neither linked in libm nor MKL (you have only the threading layer added). The whole group of MKL libraries must be added to the link line.

I am now getting new and more interesting errors. I managed to get both of the fft bits compiled as suggested by the guide but funnily enough I get the following errors

Which seems an awful lot like something didn't get compiled correctly. Any thoughts?

Note: I got ATLAS compiled so for the meantime using that as my library and had no problems getting hpcc compiled using that, so for the time being this is an exercise in curiosity while I go forward and do science with the math library that does work.

The error message is explicit:

../../../../FFT/wrapfftw.h:4:18:error:fftw.h:Nosuchfileordirectory

The required include file is in the /include/fftw directory, to use which you have to add -I/include/fftw to the compiler options.
