What are the chances of seeing scalapack in mkl for Mac OS X in near future?
We don't see many customer who are making distribute computations. Can you give more details which system you are running ?
i'm trying to compile a first principle electronic structure code for a mac cluster. the make file has a serial target and a mpi+scalapack target. the latter does not compile because of lacking scalapack support in mkl.
I second Carsten's comments. We would like to use it for similar reasons. I think there is more interest in this than you think, and the interest is certainly growing.
Cluster components (Cluster Sparse Solver, Cluster FFT, ScaLAPACK) are now available for OS X*.
you may find it into MKL v 11.3 beta. see the announce about that on the top of MKL forum.
