Hello Everyone
I installed Itensor and mpicxx ( by sudo apt-get .... ) in my own computer then
edited the Makefile as following:

MPILFLAGS= -pthread -I/usr/lib/x8664-linux-gnu/openmpi/include -L/usr//lib -L/usr/lib/x8664-linux-gnu/openmpi/lib -lmpicxx -lmpi

I still met bug informations by typing "make"

dmrg.o: In function main': pdmrg.cc:(.text.startup+0xa6e): undefined reference toMPIFinalize'
pdmrg.cc:(.text.startup+0xb1f): undefined reference to `MPI

Could someone tell me what I missed ?
Best wishes

Hi, so to get the correct include and linker flags, did you try using the command line program "mpicxx -showme" ? Or some other mpi frameworks offer similar commands. The "-showme" flag will print out the correct compiler flags for you to use. You should put the -llibname flags in the precise same order as in the printout.

Hello Miles
Thank you for your comment.
I typed mpicxx -showme:compile  
then put the location  as  MPI_CFLAGS

MPI_CFLAGS=-I/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/openmpi/include/openmpi -I/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/openmpi/include/openmpi/opal/mca/event/libevent2022/libevent -I/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/openmpi/include/openmpi/opal/mca/event/libevent2022/libevent/include -I/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/openmpi/include -pthread

I used   mpicxx --showme:link and got the LFLAGS
MPI_LFLAGS=-pthread -L/usr//lib -L/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/openmpi/lib -lmpi_cxx -lmpi

then I make again, still  got bug informations.

Best Wishes

Hi Wanzhou, could you please say also what the bug information is?

Can you please try changing the compiler itself to mpicxx? That is, instead of g++? You can do this inside the Makefile by redefining the CCCOM variable

Hi Miles
It is great.  Now 'make' works after modifying g++ as mpicxx in the Makefile.
Thank  you.
Best wishes

To mark this question as answered, the solution that worked the best was to add the line:


in the Makefile to redefine the CCCOM (cc compiler) variable.

Or replace mpicxx with the appropriate C++ compiler frontend provided by your MPI distribution.

Formatting Tips:
  • To format code, indent by four spaces
  • To format inline LaTeX, surround it by @@ on both sides
  • To format LaTeX on its own line, surround it by $$ above and below
  • For LaTeX, it may be necessary to backslash-escape underscore characters to obtain proper formatting. So for example writing \sum\_i to represent a sum over i.
