V20.9 makelocalrc issues

We run the PGI compiler within docker containers containing different Linux flavors and GCC installations. Currently I am working with a docker container with Centos-7 and GCC 7.4. To make our build system portable across different containers we call the following in our build scripts to generate a new localrc on the fly:

ndir=$(dirname 0) export PGI_LOCALRC=`readlink -f {ndir}/…/…/PLATFORM`/pgilocalrc export PGI_LOCALDIR=`readlink -f {ndir}/…/…/PLATFORM` /common/pgi/Linux_x86_64/20.9/compilers/bin/makelocalrc /common/pgi/Linux_x86_64/20.9/compilers/ -net {PGI_LOCALDIR} -o > {PGI_LOCALRC} echo "switch -pthread is append(LDLIB1=-lpthread);" >> {PGI_LOCALRC}
echo “set DEFSTDOBJDIR=/usr/lib64/;” >> {PGI_LOCALRC} echo "Using localrc = " {PGI_LOCALRC}

The contents of the resulting localrc looks reasonable:
$ cat pgilocalrc

localrc.centos7 contents

set LFC=-lgfortran;
set LDSO=/lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2;

switch -pthread is append(LDLIB1=-lpthread);
set DEFSTDOBJDIR=/usr/lib64/;

However, the compilation fails due to missing C++ includes:
c++ _obj__fusion/_solver/_6dofDynamics/PitchPlungeAirfoilModel.o
“_src/_6dofDynamics/PitchPlungeAirfoilModel.C”, line 28: catastrophic error:
cannot open source file “system_error”
#include <system_error>

I see that the missing file is present in /usr/include/c++/7.4.0/, which is included in GPPDIR in pgilocalrc:

[david@centos7 LINUX_X86_PGI18_OMPI2.1]$ ls /usr/include/c++/7.4.0/system_error

Thus, I have 2 questions:

  1. Is the localrc file shown above configured correctly?
  2. It the method of setting the PGI_LOCALRC environment variable still valid? This worked with PGI 19.X, but this is the first time I have tried with the NVIDIA HPC SDK.



Please excuse the weird formatting in the message above

One quick update: If I place the localrc file in the directory /common/pgi/Linux_x86_64/20.9/compilers/bin it is able to find the proper includes, which makes me think that the environment variable PGI_LOCALRC is no longer read. I’ll wait for confirmation…



PGI_LOCALRC got renamed to NVLOCALRC and the PGI_LOCALRC env wasn’t carried forward. Try using NVLOCALRC instead and see if that fixes the issue.

Hi Mat,

Perfect. I assumed it was something simple like this.
