Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] 1.3.1 fails with GM
From: Paul H. Hargrove (PHHargrove_at_[hidden])

I've just tested OMPI 1.3.1 w/ GM 2.0.19 and the "ring" test from LAM's
examples directory.
I too see an early death. The backtrace is shown below.


$ mpirun -mca btl gm,self -H pcp-i-1,pcp-i-2 ./ring

mpirun noticed that process rank 0 with PID 27587 on node pcp-i-1 exited
on signal 11 (Segmentation fault).
