Installation on Solaris/SPARC

magpar on Windows

See the documentation for information on compiling magpar with Cygwin and MinGW compilers and running simulations.

In addition, users have reported successful parallel magpar installations/runs with MPICH in the Cygwin environment:

  • Follow the general instructions for compilation in Cygwin.

  • Download, compile, and install a suitable MPICH Windows package (*.msi) from the MPICH homepage.

  • Update the MPI_DIR variable in your magpar Makefile.in.$HOST or Makefile.in.defaults
  • Run a magpar example with 2 magpar processes on the local machine (e.g. a dual core processor) with a command like this: mpiexec.exe -n 2 -localonly ./magpar.exe

  • Running parallel magpar processes on remote machines should only be a matter of a proper MPICH2 network installation. This requires the installation of MPDs (MPICH daemons) as a service on the remote machines.
