5.7.4. CLI Options for required support libraries

The following configure command line options are for PMIx’s required support libraries

  • --with-hwloc[=VALUE]:

  • --with-libevent[=VALUE]:

  • --with-libev[=VALUE]:

These options specify where to find

the headers and libraries for the Hwloc, Libevent, and libev libraries, respectively.


Either libevent or libev must be provided.

PMIx’s configure script will error out if both are specified. In the absence of user direction, PMIx will default to using libevent.

The following VALUEs are permitted:

  • DIR: Specify the location of a specific installation to use. configure will abort if it cannot find suitable header files and libraries under DIR.
