Description Joshua Baker-LePain 2012-10-30 21:14:15 UTC
Description of problem:
The packages contained in the gromacs-openmpi subpackage are compiled against Open MPI 1.4 and are installed into (for x86_64) /usr/lib64/openmpi/bin.  However, as of RHEL 6.3, /usr/lib64/openmpi contains version 1.5 of OpenMPI.  OpenMPI-1.4 is /usr/lib64/compat-openmpi.  As a result of this, /usr/lib64/openmpi/bin/g_mdrun_openmpi and /usr/lib64/openmpi/bin/g_mdrun_openmpi_d aren't able to be executed, as they're looking for older versions of OpenMPI.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Install gromacs-openmpi-4.5.5-1.el6
2.  ldd /usr/lib64/openmpi/bin/g_mdrun_openmpi
Actual results:
   libmpi.so.0 => not found

Expected results:
   libmpi.so.1 => /usr/lib64/openmpi/lib/libmpi.so.1 (0x000000308e600000)

Additional info:
   Recompiling the SRPM on RHEL 6.3 fixes the problem.
