Hermes currently supports two versions of the SuperLU library - the sequential one and the multithreaded one. Support for the MPI version will be added in the future. Please visit for more information about the library.


Using standard Debian packages

Install the libsuperlu3 and libsuperlu3-dev packages. In Ubuntu 6.06 (Dapper) or newer, you can use the Synaptic package manager for that, or type:

sudo apt-get install libsuperlu3 libsuperlu3-dev

Now go to the directory with Hermes. Create the file CMake.vars with the following lines (or append to the existing one):

set(SUPERLU_ROOT ~/solvers/superlu_mt) #(or your own installation destination)

Finally execute:

rm CMakeCache.txt
cmake .

You may now select SOLVER_SUPERLU as the matrix solver for your finite element problem, as detailed in the Poisson tutorial, or use it just to solve a standalone matrix problem
