I am running ubuntu 7.04 and PGI workstation 7.1.1.
I was trying to compile a program of mine and it kept raising an error about an undefined reference in liblapack (unfortunately, this was a while ago and I don’t have the exact error message written down). On a separate machine I had installed the pgi demo and it didn’t have this issue. Thinking I was clever I copied liblapack.a from that machine over to my current system. Everything worked well until I attempted to execute my program and was told that my program had been compiled using the trial edition and that the trial expired. The only trial piece that has ever been on this system is lapack, is that enough to taint the whole apparatus? If I can get liblapack.a from elsewhere and overwrite the old file will this make this issue go away or have I ‘trialized’ my system?
So much for being clever.
