Hi, Jeff. Thanks so very much for all your helps so far. I decided
that I needed to go back and check whether openmpi even works for
simple cases, so here I am.

So my shell might have exited when it detect that I ran
non-interactively. But then again, how this parameter
MCA pls: parameter "pls_rsh_agent" (current value: "ssh :rsh")

affect my outcome? How am I going to set PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH to
be like those in .bash_profile in my Torque job files?

Could you give me some tips here?

Below is my current bash shell's settings.

Thanks,
Steven.
