thanks for your quick reply. I'm not so worried about the error, it
actually seems to be an MPI issue, even though MPI worked fine on the
smaller cluster. Hopefully it isn't a pain to fix.
What I really want to know is the difference between the standard
lapacke and intel's mkl one. Is the only difference between the two, if
all I used before was functions defined in lapacke.h, to replace this
with mkl_lapacke.h? The code seems to run fine with only this change,
but I remember seeing somewhere standard lapack function calls but with
mkl__ appended at the front. I want to know if I should also modify
these function calls as well to make proper use of the mkl. The
mkl_lapacke.h header file itself doesn't seem very insightful.
I can't seem to find much useful documentation on this through google...
