DSCPACK Installation

NOTE: These intructions were updated in September 2005. They may not be kept up-to-date. Refer to the SuperLU documentation for more recent and more complete instructions.

DSCPACK must be installed before Amesos_Dscpack can be used. Follow these steps to install DSCPACK on your system:

  • Obtain the DSCPACK distribution from Padma Raghavan's DSCPACK web site. You will have to submit a form asking for a password.
  • Untar the DSCPACK code in your Trilinos3PL directory.
  • Build DSCPACK
    • Edit DSCPACK1.0/DSC_LIB/Makefile to use the correct compilers for your system.
    • Note:Trilinos3PL/config/DSCPACK1.0/DSC_LIB contains the Makefile files that I used.
    • cd DSCPACK1.0/DSC_LIB; make lib_dbl
  • Build and run an example:
    • Edit DSCPACK1.0/Makefile to use the correct compilers for your system and include MPI and BLAS libraries.
    • Note:Trilinos3PL/config/DSCPACK1.0 contains the Makefile files that I used.
    • make all
    • mpirun -np 2 ./Solve1 2 3 4 1 1 1 1 2 1
    • Expected output:
      ...starting with 2 processors in solver group
      
      ...Grid  2X 3X 4, Order 1, Factor 1, Solve  1, RHS 1, Processor 2, 
       NumLocalNonz = 35
      Stats after Matrix number 1 [1]
