Proper compile command for OSX Cluster

Post by johnawolf »

We are prepping a new OSX cluster for use with NEURON, and would like to make sure that the settings are optimal.

Since there are no instructions on compiling from sources on the main install site, I wanted to check the optimal configuration flags for OSX in parallel.

This is what I remember from the last time we did this:

./configure --prefix=$IDIR/nrn --without-x --with-paranrn

I wanted to make sure that this will allow for MPI usage.

Also - will the carbon flag help at all for the cluster install in terms of speed, or is that just gui related???

TIA - John

Should do it.

Won't do anything for speed. I don't think it's even needed for GUI anymore.
