Description Dave Love 2015-09-16 07:14:06 EDT
Description of problem:

I notice there's no support for the PSM MTL needed for "the other"
Infiniband hardware from Intel (whatever it's called this year).

It is provided in RHEL as the openmpi-psm package, depending on
infinipath-psm.  infinipath-psm isn't in Fedora, but the el6 source
package builds directly on f22.

Infinipath packaging would also be relevant to libfabric, but I
don't know if building openmpi-1.10 against libfabric would be equivalent
to the PSM MTL.

Personally, I don't have any time/interest to work on this.  But if psm/psm2/whatever were packaged for Fedora, it would be trivial to enable openmpi support.
Comment 2 Jan Kurik 2016-02-24 08:45:31 EST
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 24 development cycle.
Changing version to '24'.

More information and reason for this action is here:
Comment 3 Dave Love 2016-05-05 11:35:00 EDT
FWIW, I noticed infinipath-psm is recently packaged.
Comment 4 Michal Schmidt 2016-06-15 09:13:33 EDT
libpsm2 is available in Rawhide (but not in F24). To build openmpi with PSM2 support it should be sufficient to add libpsm2-devel to BuildRequires.

However, openmpi does not build in Rawhide, due to glibc finally poisoning the __malloc_initialize_hook symbol:

In file included from btl_openib_component.c:58:0:
../../../../opal/mca/memory/linux/malloc.h:233:29: error: attempt to use poisoned "__malloc_initialize_hook"
 OPAL_DECLSPEC extern void (*__malloc_initialize_hook) __MALLOC_PMT ((void));
Comment 5 Michal Schmidt 2016-06-15 10:25:10 EDT
v1.10.3 (upstream release likely to happen today) will build against the new glibc, because ./configure added a check for "__malloc_initialize_hook", so it will disable MCA component memory:linux.

Comment 6 Orion Poplawski 2016-10-20 18:28:01 EDT
Built for rawhide.  Hope to move to older releases in a bit.
