FWIW, I could dynamically load a trivial openmp shared library through
the dlopen machinery, which is what ctypes uses (to be exact, all python
extensions which are not static use it at some point). I tried with
centos 5.0 gcc, and then with one directly built from sources (4.2.1),
both with success.
Which compiler (version of gcc) are you using ? Do you have the code
which fails ?
