[Symbol lookup error] undefined symbol: mca_coll_base_colltype_to_str

Dear all,

OS Name: Ubuntu 20.04.4

I installed Paraview by downloading in the official website and also installed openmpi.

After that, I meet this issue when type paraview in the terminal. Before installing the openmpi, I was able to use the Paraview without any problem.

Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 keyInvalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 keyparaview: symbol lookup error: /usr/local/lib/openmpi/mca_coll_han.so: undefined symbol: mca_coll_base_colltype_to_str

What can I do to address this issue?

That is unexpected, does the issue goes away if you remove openmpi ?

Thanks for your quick reply. I will try your suggestion!

Good. it’s working. I went to the fold that I downloaded and entered below.

sudo make all uninstall

Then I restarted the terminal and typed the paraview. it’s working!

I referred this site:[OMPI users] Unistall open-mpi

Thanks a lot!

This is because our binaries use MPICH. OpenMPI is not ABI-compatible, so it cannot be found by something like LD_LIBRARY_PATH when using ParaView.
