stream.h: present but cannot be compiled

Post by Robodave » Thu Feb 17, 2011 7:53 pm

I'm trying to install Neuron on a Linux cluster. Configure completes successfully, but reports this:

Code: Select all

./configure --prefix=/home/robodave/apps/neuron --bindir=/home/robodave/bin --with-paranrn --with-mpi --without-x

Code: Select all

Make fails for unrelated reasons (the ncurses shared libraries aren't installed properly), so I can't tell if this will cause problems. It did ask me to report it, though.

Have you checked?

Duly noted. I'm not sure what will happen either.

By the way it is not necessary to include both switches --with-paranrn --with-mpi. Keep the --with-paranrn part and drop the --with-mpi.
