Hi,

These three bugs are basically the same bug: lack of upstream support for
"atomic primitives" for OpenMPI at the upstream level.  

We (as in the recently-created OpenMPI maintainer group for Debian) spoke to
upstream, and the result is that is it unlikely that these three arches will
be supported any time soon by the upstream team. IIRC some faint is there for
hppa, and help from Debian's hppa team would be appreciated.

So (at least for the forseeable future) we are left with an unbuildable
package on these arches.  I would suggest that the port maintainers for s390,
m68k and hppa actually blacklist openmpi which may be the easiest solution. 
Else we may specify an 'active list of arches' in debian/control.

Comments welcome,  Dirk

OK, neither of these two builds (the openmpi problem still
exists and has been reported by cts already).

Atomic primitives are in libatomic-ops-dev and should work.
AFAIK (but please ask the m68k porters) there are no MP (SMP
or otherwise) machines out there, or at least supported by
Linux. You can pretty certainly reuse this information and
make either available on m68k.

Until then, please revert mpi-defaults to lam on m68k, so
that we can have build-dependencies fulfillable (or I just
don’t build a newer mpi-defaults). ISTR lvm2 depending on
this (oh, and boost…).

Thanks,
