I’m trying to build HPL with the Ampere compiler kit (ampere-8.2.0-20180930) and it looks like I’ve run into an issue. HPL expects an MPI compiler, for which I’ve installed mpich-3.2.1. The build fails at the first mpicc invocation with:
mpicc -o HPL_dlacpy.o -c -DAdd_ -DF77_INTEGER=int -DStringSunStyle -I/root/hpl-2.2/include -I/root/hpl-2.2/include/Linux_Arm ../HPL_dlacpy.c
cc1: error: plugin support is disabled; configure with –enable-plugin
I’m running this on an eMAG system running RHEL 8.0-beta. I can rebuild the system with RHEL 7.6 if needed but this looks at first blush to be a generic issue.
We had help on this one from someone in the industry (would love to give them credit, and would need to make sure I could use their name)
I realize this was a missed post – please let me know if we can help with anything else.
To compile and run HPL on CentOS 7 one needs at least:
openmpi-devel mpich-devel openmpi-devel openblas-devel atlas-devel
