Subject: [OMPI devel] 1.7.4rc2r30148 - crash in MPI_Init on Linux/x86
From: Paul Hargrove (phhargrove_at_[hidden])
Date: 2014-01-08 21:59:24


I am still testing the current 1.7.4rc tarball on my various systems. The
latest failure (shown below) is a SEGV somewhere below MPI_Init on a old,
but otherwise fairly normal, Linux/x86 (32-bit) system.

The failure shown is for a singleton run, but np=2 fails as well.

I was going to attach output from "ompi_info --all", but it SEGV's too!

I will try again with a newer gcc and report back.
