Hi all,
 
  Does somebody ever link 0.4.2 on Sun Solaris gcc or Linux g++ successfuly?
 
  First, I run ./configure------------It runs ok except telling me:"checking for /include/petsc.h... no; note: MPI library path not given... trying prefix=/usr; g++ Compiler Does NOT Support MPI..."  How do I deal with this? Had I download PERSC? I don't use parallel at this time?

 Second, I run the Makefile by typing "make", it runs ok till contrib/parmetis. I guess it is the mpi stuff problem? How do I solve it? Also I can't make any of the example run, why? Where can I find the detailed information for the instllation of libfem?
 
Thanks a lot.
