Installing elmer on CentOS 7

Post by acicuta » 29 May 2015, 19:46

I installed elmer on a system that was prepared with a fresh install of CentOS base without any GUI. I used yum to install the necessary compilers and packages.

A word of warning: even if the syste is a dual processor at boot CentOS reports that "In CentOS 7, single threaded, single CPU 64-bit physical systems are unsupported." but this doesn't seem to have any influence on the system itself.

I am pleased to report that everything compiled fine just doing:

Code: Select all

git clone git://www.github.com/ElmerCSC/elmerfem
mkdir build
mkdir install
cd build
cmake -DWITH_ELMERGUI:BOOL=FALSE -DWITH_MPI:BOOL=TRUE -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=../install ../elmerfem
make -j2 install
ctest -j2
Moreover, elmer passed all 310 tests.
