[Trilinos-Users] RE : New User problems with make runtests-serial

Hi Stefan,

I had a similar issue in the past (https://software.sandia.gov/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=4015) and 
a solution that seems to work is to change the "@" on the line by "\@". ( thus  ${ @{ $definitionAoHoA[$i]{'ARGS'} } }[0] = ("");
will become  ${\@{ $definitionAoHoA[$i]{'ARGS'} } }[0] = (""); )

I hope this will work also for you.

Objet : [Trilinos-Users] New User problems with make runtests-serial


I am a new user of the trilinos packages.

I followed the installations instruction:

 1.  using Kubuntu 9.04
 2.  installed Atlas (with debian package)
 3.  installed Lapack (with debian package)
 4.  ./configure --prefix=/home/stefan/trilinos
 5.  make
 6.  make tests
 7.  make examples
 8.  make install
 9.  tried to execute make runtests-serial:
but I got the following error message:

  --trilinos-dir=/home/stefan/trilinos \
  --comm=serial \
  --build-dir=/home/stefan/trilinos \
  --category=INSTALL \
Can't use string ("0") as an ARRAY ref while "strict refs" in use at /home/stefan/trilinos/commonTools/test/utilities/runtests line 746.
make: *** [runtests-serial] Error 9

Unfortunately I couldn't find any hint in the Internet how to fix this problem...

Does anyone has a guess how to fix it?

Thanks in advance!
