Running MPI.NET Applications with Mono in Ubuntu

No comments
Sometime back I played around Mono to get some of our parallel applications running on Ubuntu. These applications were C# based and used MPI.NET.

The following blog post is a great starting point with all the details you'll need. So I'll skip the steps, except to point out couple of caveats you need to consider.

  1. automake versions above 1.9 will give you an error when building MPI.NET. May be you can change the make script to work with them, but I found it easy to just install automake1.9 to solve it.
  2. You'll need to add /usr/local/lib to your LD_LIBRARY_PATH. Essentially what you need to do is add this path to /etc/ and run ldconfig as root. See documenation from Mono on this at
  3. Make sure to do chmod +x to your dlls
