Hi Eric,

The engineer at Oak Ridge says Summit architecture is incompatible:

SummitDev is based on the PowerPC (ppc64le) architecture, and is binary
    incompatible with Chimera as it's distributed. The Chimera
    documentation warns
    that "it's not possible to re-compile a fully functional Chimera from
    source code distributed here."

Do you know anyway around about this problem so we are able to install
Chimera in Summit at Oak Ridge ?

Please let me know
