#229 New mpi module install location and content
Closed: Fixed None Opened 8 years ago by orion.

I've put up a revised version of the mpi package guidelines here:


The change is to install the module file under a "mpi" sub-directory and and "conflict mpi" to the module file to avoid being able to load multiple mpi modules at one time. See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=651074 for some background.

This has already been done in the openmpi package, but not yet in the mpich2 package, but I believe it should. This is a common standard to use with environment modules. In fact it calls for a revision of that guideline as well, which I'll try to get to soon.

Proposed changes approved (+1:7, 0:1, -1:0)

Please be sure to send along a diff for the Environment Modules guidelines when they're ready, and we'll review that in a separate ticket.
