The Environment Modules package user base is not negligible, including many universities, research centers, national labs, ans private companies, in the US and around the world. How does the user base of LMod compare? The user base certainly is much larger for Environment Modules than LMod.

Nobody was trying to make a statement here, Gus - I was only quoting something based on the last known repo of which I was aware. If the modules folks moved to Github, then they might want to make that a little more obvious. :-/ Lmod vs modules - I couldn't care less. My understanding is that

Hi Ralph and list I am no developer, but my impression is that, paraphrasing Mark Twain, the reports about the death of the Environment Modules (http://modules.sourceforge.net/) package have been exaggerated. That presumed death/obsolescence has been repeated a few times on the OMPI list, which

There is also the Lmod project, based at TACC, and run by Robert McLay. https://www.tacc.utexas.edu/tacc-projects/lmod That's under current, active development, and if you'd be creating a brand new modules infrastructure, bears a close look. -- bennet On Tue, Aug 5, 2014 at 2:39 PM, Fabricio

Hi Ahsan Besides Andrew's excellent suggestion for the runtime environment. For the installation, Open MPI configuration scripts and Makefiles support VPATH. Hence, you can create two separate directories to *build* it with Gnu and Intel compilers. Then you launch configure, make, make install
