Success on Mac OS X!
Using Petsc-2.3.0 (with mpich2-1.0.1), and the cvs version of libmesh
(I haven't tried the released version, but I assume they're not too
dissimilar), I was able to compile and run most of the examples on a
dual-processor G5 running OS X Version 10.3.9.
The examples with "problems:"
ex6: requires infinite element support,
ex7: requires "complex"
ex8: I don't know what the problem is here. The error message says:
rank 0 in job ... caused collective abort of all ranks.
exit status of rank 0: killed by signal 9 (Input file problems?)
ex15: requires second derivative support
ex16: SLEPc not enabled.
