A PRISMS-PF user recently posted to our forum
he was having an issue with the deal.ii package he got through apt-get on
Ubuntu 17.10. The issue seems to be related to a missing shared object file
for MUMPS. I booted up a Ubuntu virtual machine on VirtualBox and saw the
What I did:
1. Installed Ubuntu 17.10 on the VM
2. Updated apt
3. Retrieved the deal.ii package ($ sudo apt-get install libdeal.ii)
4. Found the deal.ii example directory to test the installation and
copied it into my home directory
5. Ran CMake for step-1
6. Attempted to compile step-1 (both "make release" and "make debug" had
the same outcome)
I checked the '/usr/lib/' directory and found a number of MUMPS shared
objects (libesmumps-5.1.so, libesmumps.a, libesmumps.so,
libptesmumps-5.1.so, libptesmumps.a, and libptesmumps.so), but not
"libsmumps.so". I thought that maybe there was a file naming error and
renamed a copy of "libesmumps.so" to "libsmumps.so", but then I got a
similar error with a different MUMPS shared object. After a few rounds of
that, I gave up.
Does anyone know what the issue is and how to solve it?
