Parallel STAR version

I am a new STAR user. After running through some tutorials my job is to get to know how the parallel version works. The documentation isn't that extensive answering all my questions. So I went into trouble. The status is, that there are naming conflicts between the MPIch-library and the (mapping) /usr/local/star-cd/v3100B/solve/mpp/mpich.o file for example. I found that the file mentioned above (mpich.o) uses lower case names where the mpich implementation library uses upper case names.

In general: has anybody experiences with the parallel version of STAR? Any hints suggestions??? (they are really really welcome :)

Thanks in advance,

Re: Parallel STAR version
CD offers pre-compiled versions of mpich that you can download from their website for just about all machines. These versions are meant to work with STAR 3.15 (the latest) so I don't guarentee that it will work with your version, but they probably will. The quickest thing to do is call user support.
