Cactus build fails on Kraken

Hello,

I'm trying to build the development version of einsteintoolkit on Kraken. The build fails with the following error:

$ sim build

checking whether the C compiler (/opt/pgi/9.0.4/linux86-64/9.0/bin/pgcc -g -DCRAY_XT -c99 -Wl,--allow-multiple-definition -Bstatic) works... no
configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C compiler cannot create executables (see configs/<configname>/config-data/config.log for details).

Error reconfiguring sim-config
make: *** [sim-config] Error 2

I see that SimFactory is trying to use /opt/pgi/9.0.4/linux86-64/9.0/bin/pgcc which is no longer there in the system. The available pgi compilers are pgi/11.9.0(default) and pgi/12.1.0.

Thanks, Ajith

    The development version of the Einstein Toolkit uses Intel 12 on Kraken, not the PGI compiler. You may be using an outdated version of Simfactory.

    I thought I was using the development version. I tried it again:

    update ET on my laptop:

    newton-x:einstein_toolkit pajith$ pwd /Users/pajith/opt/einstein_toolkit newton-x:einstein_toolkit pajith$ ls Cactus GetComponents einsteintoolkit.th newton-x:einstein_toolkit pajith$./GetComponents -a einsteintoolkit.th Do you want to update all existing components? yes, no [no] : yes

    Build Cactus on Kraken:

    pajith@kraken-gsi2:/nics/a/proj/cactus/pajith/xt5/Cactus> pwd /nics/a/proj/cactus/pajith/xt5/Cactus pajith@kraken-gsi2:/nics/a/proj/cactus/pajith/xt5/Cactus> ./simfactory/bin/sim --clean --reconfig build

    And I get the same error:

    checking whether the C compiler (/opt/pgi/9.0.4/linux86-64/9.0/bin/pgcc -g -DCRAY_XT -c99 -Wl,--allow-multiple-definition -Bstatic) works... no configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C compiler cannot create executables (see configs/<configname>/config-data/config.log for details).

    This is indeed the development version.

    You can use "svn status" there to see whether you have local changes. In particular, the file Cactus/simfactory/mdb/machinefiles/kraken.ini should point to kraken-intel12.cfg, not to kraken.cfg.

    You may have configured your executable with a former version of Simfactory. If you just rebuild, it will not automatically modify your configuration options. Look at the file Cactus/configs/sim/OptionList, and compare it to Cactus/simfactory/mdb/options/kraken-intel12.cfg. There should be a few differences, but they should be largely identical. If not, you need to reconfigure. It may be easiest to delete your existing configuration and rebuild from scratch.
