1. Quick start
In many cases, OpenPMIx can be built and installed by simply indicating the installation directory on the command line:
$ tar xf pmix-<version>.tar.bz2 $ cd pmix-<version> $ ./configure --prefix=<path> |& tee config.out ...lots of output... $ make -j 8 |& tee make.out ...lots of output... $ make install |& tee install.out ...lots of output...
Note that there are many, many configuration options to the
./configure step. Some of them may be needed for your particular
environment; see below for descriptions of the options available.
If your installation prefix path is not writable by a regular user,
you may need to use
su to run the
step. For example:
$ sudo make install |& tee install.out [sudo] password for builduser: <enter your password here> ...lots of output...
Finally, note that VPATH builds are fully supported. For example:
$ tar xf pmix-<version>.tar.bz2 $ cd pmix-<version> $ mkdir build $ cd build $ ../configure --prefix=<path> |& tee config.out ...etc.
