Re: Problems with running Linux/MPICH2 version of Firefly 8.0.1

Alex Granovsky


Note, there are two different mpich2-linked distribution on our server,
the one for older mpich2 installations and the second which is
compatible with the newer ones.

The binary in the RC distributions was compiled to work on the old

To run Firefly, you should have execute and read permissions
set on the firefly binary. That is: chmod a+rx ./firefly801

Next, check that all references to shared libraries are properly resolved:

 ldd ./firefly801

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
Alex Granovsky
