[petsc-dev] configure error on Edison

FYI, this is what NERSC tells me. I tired cmake/3.0.0 but I got an error
from PETSc I think saying Metis needs v2.8.  (This should probably be
fixed.)  The CRAYPE_LINK_TYPE=dynamic did not seem to play nice with my
configuration ('--with-shared-libraries=0') but cmake/ seems to be


Thanks for the additional details - indeed, it is the -rdynamic flag being
used in the config tests that is causing problems. One way to to get around
that is setting CRAYPE_LINK_TYPE to dynamic (that way -rdynamic won't
fail), and the other is to use (not or 3.0.0) which does
not add -rdynamic on the link line when building config tests. Would either
of these workaround be ok for your use case?

Many thanks,
Scott French
