Hi all Sorry for cross-pos
 
Hi all

Sorry for cross-posting, but since I haven't got an answer on OpenFOAM-bugs, I'll retry it here:

Does anybody know as to why in applications/utilities/parallelProcessing/decompositionMethods

- first $FOAM_LIBBIN/libmetis.so is built from metis-5.0pre2
- then libdecompositionMethods.so is linked against that
- followed by building $FOAM_LIBBIN/libmetis.so from parMetisDecomp/ParMetis-3.1/METISLib which overwrites $FOAM_LIBBIN/libmetis.so

Consequently, everything will load libmetis.so built from ParMetis when it runs since the metis-5.0 version is no longer around.

Does any of you know any specific reason as to why this is done so? Why not build/link libdecompositionMethods.so against libmetis.so provided by ParMetis in the first place?

Michael
