required 3rd-party package versions supported (PRRTE, hwloc, libevent)
back-end run-time systems supported (behind PRRTE)
OS’s and compilers supported

Systems that have been tested are:
Linux (various flavors/distros), 64 bit (x86, ppc, aarch64), with gcc (>=4.8.x+), clang (>=3.6.0), Absoft (fortran), Intel, and Portland (be sure to also see the Compiler Notes section)
macOS (10.14-10.15, 11.x, 12.x), 64 bit (x86_64) with XCode compilers
Other systems have been lightly (but not fully) tested:
Linux (various flavors/distros), 32 bit, with gcc
Cygwin 32 & 64 bit with gcc
ARMv6, ARMv7, ARMv9
Other 64 bit platforms.
OpenBSD. Requires configure options
--disable-dlopenwith this release.
Problems have been reported when building Open MPI on FreeBSD 11.1 using the clang-4.0 system compiler. A workaround is to build Open MPI using the GNU compiler.
The run-time systems that are currently supported are:
ssh / rsh
PBS Pro, Torque
Platform LSF (tested with v9.1.1 and later)
Cray XE, XC, and XK
Oracle Grid Engine (OGE) 6.1, 6.2 and open source Grid Engine
