I believe I have it compiled now. The confusion had to do with the first configure/make step. This step isn't supposed to use the cross compilers (blrts_xlc). I just assumed that it was supposed to and I was forcing it by setting all of the CC etc variables manually. The second configure/make does u...

Ok, I think I've figured out where the out of memory is coming from. ./nrnmpi/src/nmodl/nocmodl This binary is a BlueGene compiled binary, and the make is attempting to run it locally, which would require nocmodl to be a PowerPC64 compiled binary. (MODLUNIT=../../../nrn/share/lib/nrnunits.lib ; \ ex...

During configure, I noticed the following warning: do SIGPOLL and I_GETSIG work: no But see config.log to see why it failed. However, config.log doesn't clarify the message. When I attempt to run make after the second configure, it runs for several minutes, and then errors with: /opt/ibmcmp/vacpp/bg...

I believe I have compiled the first portion as it created ./nrnmpi/powerpc64/bin hoc_e modlunit nocmodl and the file command seems to indicate these are BGL binaries: file ./powerpc64/bin/nocmodl ./powerpc64/bin/nocmodl: ELF 32-bit MSB executable, PowerPC or cisco 4500, version 1 (embedded), statica...

Update: I ran the sh build.sh and ../nrn/configure commands on a system (RHEL5) with the correct versions of automake/autoconf/libtool, and it still produces the same Makefile (CC = gcc, etc...) even though I specify --enable-bluegene on the configure line I downloaded the latest SVN and now the sh ...

Thanks for the quick reply. I attempted this using the nrn-6.0.tar.gz file and: sh build.sh errors at some point with: extend_depcomp.sh: extend_depcomp.sh: No such file or directory The file doesn't exist anywhere under the nrn-6.0 directory. I'm going to try the SVN version, however, my system doe...

Compiling for Blue Gene?

Howdy, I notice on the web site that NEURON will run on an IBM Blue Gene.

Does anyone have any specific instructions for compiling NEURON for the Blue Gene?

Thanks, Mike
