I am trying to install and

make[1]: /usr/bin/mpicc: Permission denied
make[1]: *** [molmatch.o] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 2

I have mpicc installed in /usr/bin/mpicc

and checked the paths in make files in src and lib

I have tried sudo make

Any ideas why permission is denied?

  • what happens if you su to root and attempt to make a directory in /usr/bin? – ryekayo Sep 25 '14 at 18:11
  • You could also install MPI in some other location like /usr/local/ instead of /usr, or your home directory. – Wesley Bland Sep 25 '14 at 18:26
