Re: [Rd] Implementing R on IBM p690 cluster Jump

Dear All,

recently I posted a probably difficult question concerning the installation and implementation of R-2.1.0 on the IBM p690 cluster "Jump" at the research centre in Jülich, Germany.

We identified several modifications for an installation such as:

(i) the installation of the most recent iconflib in the local user directory
(ii) the configuration command

OBJECT_MODE=64 MAKE=gmake CC="cc -DSTDC" SHLIB_LDFLAGS="-Wl,-G" F77="xlf" PREFIX=/home3/zdvex/ufzaloe ./configure --without-x --without-blas --without-readline --with-libiconv-prefix= =/home3/zdvex/ufzaloe/lib

(iii) and the compilation command OBJECT_MODE=64 gmake

(thanks to Christoph Pospiech for help).

The really severe problem is, that the compilation now aboarts when making the survival R-library. This is what we get:

gmake[3]: Leaving directory `/work/.j36/R.INSTALL.3207208/survival/src'

** R
** data
**  moving datasets to lazyload DB
** inst
** preparing package for lazy loading

/home3/zdvex/ufzaloe/R-2.1.0/bin/INSTALL[325]: 1364064 Illegal instruction(coredump)
ERROR: lazy loading failed for package 'survival' ** Removing '/home3/zdvex/ufzaloe/R-2.1.0/library/survival' gmake[2]: *** [survival.ts] Error 1

`/home3/zdvex/ufzaloe/R-2.1.0/src/library/Recommended' gmake: *** [stamp-recommended] Error 2

(see attchment, zip archive of log-file).

Besides the OS-problems (like missing readline implementation) it seems as if we need good help from the R developers community, as this most recent bug (compilation of survival) seems to an R problem.

However, we are still strongly interested in getting this stuff running, any good suggestions very welcome!
