Hi, everyone,

I want to install Rmpi on a cluster with Fedora linux. It already installed mpich2, but not lam-mpi. I installed R-2.2.0 on it already.

And I got error as below:

Please check if --with-mpi=/usr/local/mpich2/bin/ is right
ERROR: configuration failed for package 'Rmpi'
** Removing '/usr/local/R-2.2.0/library/Rmpi'

Somehow it can not find the mpi.h which is in usr/local/mpich2. Can anyone kindly give me some hint on what should be done? Will installing lam-mpi solve the problem? If so, should mpich2 be uninstalled first? Or just modify the path will do?

Thanks a lot!
