Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] 1.7.4rc2r30148 - crash in MPI_Init on Linux/x86
From: Ralph Castain (rhc_at_[hidden])
Date: 2014-01-08 23:02:45


Most likely problem is a bad backing store site - any chance you could give me a line number from this? There are a lot of calls to register params in that code and I'd need some help in figuring out which one wasn't right.
