OpenMPI is not really in Fedora 10
Last modified: 2009-06-30 17:00:54 EDT
I cannot find am up-to-date version of OpenMPI in Fedora 10 repositories.
All I see is 1.2.4-2.fc9. Yes fc9 for Fedora 10 through yum.
1.2.5 1.2.6 1.2.7 1.2.8 1.2.9 had been ignored.
1.3.0 continues to be ignored.
I also noticed contemporary mpich2 1.0.8 released into F10 Updates Stable
Is it still maintained and supported? Is Fedora done with OpenMPI?
Jay is helping out with Open MPI issues, so added him to the Cc list.
Here is another weird development. The LAM-7.1.4 package has just been fixed and is poised for Fedora 11:
I thought that LAM was absorbed into OpenMPI, so effectivelly there is no upstream for LAM. I would expect LAM to be dropped, OpenMPI to be upgraded to 1.3.1, and let it coexist with mpich2.
Ping? Need a co-maintainer?
I got it. There is too much value in MPI to properly maintain it in Fedora.
There is better attention paid to it in RHEL :/
I've updated the openMPI build in rawhide (it should make it just under the wire for Fedora 11) to 1.3.1.
Doug, perhaps you should consider letting someone with more time/interest maintain (or co-maintain) this package in Fedora? I'm closing out this bug, but please consider it.
Tom, did you not read comment #1? There *is* someone in the process of taking it over. However, both he and I have non-Fedora responsibilities in addition to Fedora responsibilities, so our work is on an as possible basis.
I did read comment #1. I still think it might be good to open this package up for maintenance from a willing community member who may have more time than you or Jay to devote to this package. Especially given that there is a volunteer in comment #3.
It's open to cvsextras commits. In addition, I gave someone else (Can't remember name at the moment) full privs.
