I'm trying to install MPICH2 on a ubuntu server installation (7.04 fiesty fawn). This is for a Beowulf cluster.
I have so far been unable to install it for two reasons.
1) under the root account:
apt-get install mpich2
yields the following:
Package mpich2 is not available, but is referred to by another package E: Package mpich2 has no installation candidate
2) When installing from a tar ball using the following instructions from cd /mirror
mkidr mpich2 tar xvf mpich2_1.3.1.orig.tar.gz (creates directory /mirror/mpich2-1.3.1) cd mpich2-1.3.1 ./configure --prefix=/mirror/mpich2 make sudo make install
everything goes fine until make, where i am informed:
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
there is a small indent on my desk shaped curiously like my forehead. What do you suppose I do to get this bloody software installed?
