I started installing HPL a while ago, and had a related question. I've been following along with this guide from Intel. I figure this warrants a whole new one. When I try to make the archive, the output seems fine until the end, where it gives an error.

make[2]: Entering directory `/hpl-2.0/src/auxil/intel64'
Makefile:47: No such file or directory
make[2]: *** No rule to make target `'.  Stop.
make[2]: Leaving directory `/hpl-2.0/src/auxil/intel64'
make[1]: *** [build_src] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/hpl-2.0'
make: *** [build] Error 2

Going to the directory /hpl-2.0/src/auxil/intel64 shows a file, "", but it's highlighted red, and the white text blinks.

Is there a way to manually make that file? What do I need to do to get the makefile to do this for me?

Found out that is linked to another file, but it isn't the right file. How do I change the link? – zarose Apr 22 '11 at 16:29

in there's a line where it's trying to create a symlink:

   $(LN_S) $(TOPdir)/Make.$(arch)

the command fails if the source code directory is not $(HOME)/hpl, TOPdir variable should be defined in your Make.intel64:

TOPdir       = $(HOME)/hpl

Changing the variable to your actual path should solve the problem (or move source code to $(HOME)/hpl).

I think the problem is with the new name hpl-2.0 used in the tar, I solved with:

# mv hpl-2.0 hpl
