Hi All,
I will setup NAMD on a AMD Opteron Cluster (Each node two 146 processors, 16
nodes, SuSE Linux Enterprise System Version 8) , so I tried to compile NAMD
on it but I failed.

Thirst I tried it with the command:

./build charm++ mpi-linux-ia64 opteron -ODCMK_OPTIMIZE=1

but I got the message:

Error> option: opteron is not supported in this version!
Supported compilers: ecc gcc3 cxx gcc gcc3 icc kcc pgcc
Supported options: gm vmi bluegene lcs ooc

then I tried:

./build charm++ mpi-linux-ia64 -ODCMK_OPTIMIZE=1

This worked till the following message occurred:

Fatal Error by charmc in directory
Command g++ -DCMK_SEQUENTIAL=1 -D__CHARMC__=1 -I../bin/../include -c xi-main.C
-o xi-main.o returned error code 1
charmc exiting...
make: *** [xi-main.o] Error 1
Charm++ NOT BUILT. Either cd into mpi-linux-ia64/tmp and try
to resolve the problems yourself, visit
for more information. Otherwise, email the developers at

After this I tried several other compilers like gcc pgcc and so on. But always
the same error messages occurred. I found some threads in the NAMD mailing
list that deal with it, but it still won't work. So has anyone an idea what's

Thanks in advance, Marek!
