The sources of the library are located in the MED_SRC directory. The first step consists in preparing the configuration of the library :

cd ${MED_SRC}

This will create a MEDMEM library with link to the SALOME Kernel. If it is desirable to have a standalone version of the library to be used independently from SALOME, use :

cd ${MED_SRC}
./build_configure --without-kernel

The library can then be configured :

mkdir ../MED_BUILD
../MED_SRC/configure --prefix=`pwd`/../MED_INSTALL

This will configure the library without splitting functionalities. ParaMEDMEM will be compiled if an MPI version has been found.

The following options can be useful to configure MEDMEM :
