Dear all,
I was trying to install NAMD 2.8 version on IBM clsuter from source code

$uname -a
Linux cnode39 2.6.5-7.244-pseries64 #1 SMP Mon Dec 12 18:32:25 UTC 2005
ppc64 ppc64 ppc64 GNU/Linux

when i try to build the charm++ using the command ,
$env MPICXX=mpicc ./build charm++ mpi-linux-ppc mpicc --no-build-shared

it gives the error saying mpicxx compiler doesnt work and i have tried with
mpicc also, its giving the error .. i have pasted part of the output ..

configure: WARNING: unrecognized options: --with-productio
Setting load balancing timer type as 'double'
checking machine name... mpi-linux-ppc
checking "cp command as"... cp -p
checking "C++ compiler as"... "mpicxx "
checking "whether C++ compiler works"... "no"
Cannot compile C++ programs with mpicxx
 (check your charm++ version)

Can anybody suggest compilers and other things need to be taken care of
during installation on this machine ..
or is there a precompiled vaersion of NAMD avaibale for this ibm cluster( i
have tried using AIX-power-lapi, but doesn't seem to work ) ..?

Thank u
