Just as an FYI, I also included the sm param as you suggested and
changed the -np to 1, because anything more than that just duplicates
the same error. I also saw this same error message in previous posts as
a bug. Would that be the same issue in this case?

$ mpirun --prefix /usr/local/openmpi-1.2b2 --hostfile ./h1-3 -np 1 --mca
btl mx,sm,self ./cpi

[node-1:09704] mca: base: component_find: unable to open btl mx: file

pi is approximately 3.1415926544231341, Error is 0.0000000008333410

Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Ompi failing on mx only

Sorry to jump into the discussion late. The mx btl does not support
communication between processes on the same node by itself, so you have
to include the shared memory transport when using MX. This will
eventually be fixed, but likely not for the 1.2 release. So if you do:

   mpirun --prefix /usr/local/openmpi-1.2b2 -x LD_LIBRARY_PATH --
hostfile ./h1-3 -np 2 --mca btl mx,sm,self ./cpi

It should work much better. As for the MTL, there is a bug in the MX
MTL for v1.2 that has been fixed, but after 1.2b2 that could cause the
random failures you were seeing. It will work much better after
1.2b3 is released (or if you are feeling really lucky, you can try out
the 1.2 nightly tarballs).

The MTL is a new feature in v1.2. It is a different communication
abstraction designed to support interconnects that have matching
implemented in the lower level library or in hardware (Myrinet/MX,
Portals, InfiniPath are currently implemented). The MTL allows us to
exploit the low latency and asynchronous progress these libraries can
provide, but does mean multi-nic abilities are reduced. Further, the
MTL is not well suited to interconnects like TCP or InfiniBand, so we
will continue supporting the BTL interface as well.
