Install MPICH2 on a Mac

I am currently using a Macbook Pro, I had to install MPICH2 to use MPI.

  1. Install MacPorts from
  2. sudo port install mpich2

This is almost exactly the same as I used to do on Gentoo:

  1. sudo emerge mpich2

I have never had to install it on Windows but I am pretty sure it is a bit trickier since you will probably want to make it work with Visual Studio.
