[Trilinos-Users] intel compiler problems

I don't have any experience with this problem...

However, a very quick work-around to get you going again would be:

 1.  after the build failure, navigate to the triutils directory where this fails: packages/triutils/src
 2.  execute: make VERBOSE=1 Trilinos_Util_CrsMatrixGallery.cpp.o
 3.  the command should result in failure, but it will be printed to the command line. copy-paste it, changing the O2 or O3 to O1, and re-issue.
 4.  if all goes as intended, you should be able to go to the top of the build tree and run "make" for a finished Trilinos build (assuming this compiler bug doesn't pop up somewhere else).

This is a little tedious for regular use, but if you simply need a Trilinos installation to work from, this should get you past this (Intel?) bug and working again, without having to downgrade your whole Trilinos build to O1 or O0.

I haven't had any problems compiling trilinos with the 10.1 Intel
compilers in the past, so it seems to be specific to the 11.x versions.

I'm considering trying the latest version available from Intel
(11.1.059) and hoping they might have fixed the bug or giving the 11.0.x
version a try to see if the problem is specific to the 11.1.x compilers.

Has anyone been successful compiling trilinos with any 11.x version of
the Intel compilers on a 64-bit Linux system?
