This *may* be due to stdio blocking issues (e.g., not getting the password/passphrase to ssh properly, so the application never actually launches on the remote node).
 
The first thing I would do is find out why you are getting prompted for a password. Open MPI requires that you are not prompted -- check out our FAQ on the issue:
 
http://www.open-mpi.org/faq/?category=rsh
 
In particular:
 
http://www.open-mpi.org/faq/?category=rsh#ssh-keys
 
Once you get that going, try OMPI's mpirun again and see if it works without hanging. I'd first try launching non-MPI applications such as "hostname" or "uptime". If those work, then try your MPI hello world program.

        If i mpirun the MPI application--'hello world' on a single computer(dual core) itself, it is work. But it can't be successful when i mpirun it across multiple nodes. The rsh/ssh agent is work, i can rsh/ssh to other nodes.Everytime i mpirun 'hostname' , the remote rsh/ssh agent ask for the password.I enter the password but the Openmpi is hang. It is just hang and nothing else.
        I don't know what happen to my Openmpi enviroment or operating system.
         
        Would you ever encount this problem?

        "Jeff Squyres (jsquyres)" <jsquyres_at_[hidden]> 說:

                Can you provide a little more information?
                 
                What exactly are you trying to mpirun across multiple nodes? Is it an MPI application or a non-MPI application? For example, can you mpirun "hostname" (i.e., the Unix hostname utility) across multiple nodes successfully?
                 
                If you're trying to mpirun a user application, what application is it? Can you mpirun a trivial MPI application (e.g., hello world) successfully?
                 
                Thanks.

                        I have installed the openmpi -1.0.2 on the Fedora Core5 operating system. I use the Intel Fortran compiler. I can rsh/ssh to the other processor in our cluster( 2 PC's , 4cores). I can mpirun on a processor itself successfully. When i mpirun on 2 PC's, after entering the password, the program will be hung!
                         
                        Does anyone encounter this problem?How do i check and fix it?
                         
                        Thanks in advance
