Hi Folks,

So I have spent the weekend rebuilding my installation of MPI.Net on MPICH2 and then tried to rebuild on OpenMPI, still to no avail.

I have managed through all the patches (thanks) to cleanly run the ‘autogen.sh’ script and the ‘./configure’ and make as well as install into the GAC. So far everything looks fine, but I am still getting problems when I try to run the test programs such as PingPong:

sf-mbp:Debug stuart$ mono PingPong.exe

Unhandled Exception: System.TypeInitializationException: An exception was thrown by the type initializer for MPI.Unsafe ---> System.DllNotFoundException: mpinet
  at (wrapper managed-to-native) MPI.Unsafe:mpinet_MPI_COMM_WORLD ()
  at MPI.Unsafe..cctor () [0x00000]
  --- End of inner exception stack trace ---
  at MPI.Environment..ctor (System.String[]& args) [0x00000]
  at PingPong.Main (System.String[] args) [0x00000]

This is however I feel a step forward :) , since at least it looks like the MPI.dll and the exception is being raised from within MPI.Net.

I have tried the advice from Jo and my MPI.dll.config starts:
<configuration>
 <dllmap dll="mpi" target="/usr/lib/libmpi.0.dylib">
    <dllentry dll="mpi" name="MPI_Abort" target="MPI_Abort" />
    ...

I have tried various permutations of the dllmap line again to no avail.
Other potentially useful information:

Thoughts or suggestions for next steps?
