[Trilinos-Users] Configuration problem for Beam

You are running into an Automake vs Cmake incompatibility issue.  Beam is set up to work with the old-style Trilinos build system (Automake) not the new system (Cmake).

This is not a big problem.  But it does make the installation instruction incorrect.  There are a few paths to consider.  Probably the best thing to do is to "cmakify" Beam as instructed on the Trilinos website.

Subject: [Trilinos-Users] Configuration problem for Beam


When I tried to install Beam, the console is

checking specified Trilinos installation-dir... /home/zimingzheng/Trilinos/trilinos-build/INSTALL
Specified Trilinos installation directory /home/zimingzheng/Trilinos/trilinos-build/INSTALL
doesn't seem to contain fei_base.hpp. (Meaning Trilinos wasn't configured
with '--enable-fei'.
Trilinos support will not be enabled.

Actually I have installed FEI package. Could you please help me for this? Thanks!
