Fedora Updated package.
Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 3
Name        : lam
Version     : 7.1.1                      
Release     : 1_FC3                  
Summary     : The LAM (Local Area Multicomputer) programming environment.
Description :
LAM (Local Area Multicomputer) is an Message-Passing Interface (MPI)
programming environment and development system for heterogeneous
computers on a network. With LAM/MPI, a dedicated cluster or an
existing network computing infrastructure can act as one parallel
computer to solve one problem. LAM/MPI is considered to be "cluster
friendly" because it offers daemon-based process startup/control as
well as fast client-to-client message passing protocols. LAM/MPI can
use TCP/IP and/or shared memory for message passing (different RPMs
are supplied for this -- see the main LAM website at for details).<

LAM features a full implementation of MPI version 1 (with the
exception that LAM does not support cancelling of sends), and much of
version 2. Compliant applications are source code portable between LAM
and any other implementation of MPI. In addition to meeting the
standard, LAM/MPI offers extensive monitoring capabilities to support
debugging. Monitoring happens on two levels: On one level, LAM/MPI has
the hooks to allow a snapshot of a process and message status to be
taken at any time during an application run. The status includes all
aspects of synchronization plus datatype map/signature, communicator
group membership and message contents (see the XMPI application on the
main LAM website). On the second level, the MPI library can produce a
cumulative record of communication, which can be visualized either at
runtime or post-mortem.

- Fix RPM build on x86-64

* Mon Apr  5 2004 Lon Hohberger  7.0.3-6.2

- Remove .debug from main RPM; users wishing to use TotalView
will need to install the -debuginfo RPM. (#119523)

* Tue Mar  2 2004 Elliot Lee 

- rebuilt

* Fri Feb 13 2004 Elliot Lee

information (eg, TotalView) on appropriate platforms (eg,
32-bit platforms).  According to the file for
TotalView, it only really works on 32-bit platforms at
the moment.

* Fri Dec 20 2002 Elliot Lee  2:6.5.8-1

  that builds without C++ wrappers is preferable to a package that doesn't
  build at all

- 6.5.4, from the stable branch. Minor bugfixes, more docs. This also
  made allmost all references to the buildroot go away.
- fix the remaining reference
- Don't include examples as they are too tied with the buildroot.
- Add perl and file-utils as build dependencies
- don't include doc/* as documentation, that directory disappeared a
  long time ago (rpm doesn't fail if something in the doc section is
  missing )

* Mon Jul 16 2001 Trond Eivind Glomsrød

  programs (#34796)

* Wed Apr  4 2001 Trond Eivind Glomsrød 

- 6.5.1 final
- update URL

  than  6.5.1 etc.

* Tue Mar 27 2001 Trond Eivind Glomsrød 

- 6.5b7
- fix lamhelpdir problems

* Fri Mar  2 2001 Trond Eivind Glomsrød 

- 6.5b5 - this is just a renaming of the 6.3.3b series,
  and should hopefully be indentical to 6.5 final

* Mon Feb 12 2001 Trond Eivind Glomsrød 

- make a link from mpi++.h, not mpi++, to mpi2c++/mpi++.h
- 6.3.3b58, which should work better on SMP machines in
  a cluster

* Tue Nov 28 2000 Trond Eivind Glomsrød 

- 6.3.3b47

* Thu Aug 17 2000 Trond Eivind Glomsrød 

- 6.3.3b28, which should match the release. One known
  problem on SCO, otherwise none. This includes 
  fixing some programs which didn't work in the 
  last build.

* Thu Jul 27 2000 Harald Hoyer 

- fixed the install process, that the lam tools have the
  right path set. make all;make DESTDIR install is 
  our friend.

* Wed Jul 19 2000 Trond Eivind Glomsrød

  it build. More needed.
- Removed C++ (won't build) and ROMIO (who cares) support

* Thu Jun 15 2000 Trond Eivind Glomsrød 

- ugly tricks to make it use %{_mandir}
- patch to make it build with current compiler and glibc
- don't build on IA64

* Tue Apr 25 2000 Trond Eivind Glomsrød 

- changed RPI to usysv - this should be good for
  (clusters of) SMPs.

* Tue Mar 28 2000 Harald Hoyer 

- patched scheme Makefile

* Tue Mar 28 2000 Harald Hoyer 

- new subminor version
- patched Makefile to build otb daemons, to satisfy conf.otb and build all

* Sat Mar  4 2000 Cristian Gafton 

- fixed the whole tree the hard way - get into each Makefile and fix
  brokeness on a case by case basis. Traces of Buildroot should be 
  erradicated by now.

* Thu Mar  2 2000 Cristian Gafton 

- put back the mpi2c++ stuff.

* Tue Feb 29 2000 Cristian Gafton 

- take out the mpi2c++ in a separate package
