I have compiled openmpi-1.2.3 with the --with-mx=<directory>
configuration and gcc compiler. On testing with 4-8 slots I get an error
message, the mx ports are busy:

>mpirun --mca btl mx,self -np 4 ./cpi
[node001:10071] mca_btl_mx_init: mx_open_endpoint() failed with
[node001:10074] mca_btl_mx_init: mx_open_endpoint() failed with
[node001:10073] mca_btl_mx_init: mx_open_endpoint() failed with

Process 0.1.0 is unable to reach 0.1.1 for MPI communication.
If you specified the use of a BTL component, you may have
forgotten a component (such as "self") in the list of 
usable components.

It looks like MPI_INIT failed for some reason; your parallel process is
likely to abort.  There are many reasons that a parallel process can
fail during MPI_INIT; some of which are due to configuration or
problems.  This failure appears to be an internal failure; here's some
additional information (which may only be relevant to an Open MPI

*** An error occurred in MPI_Init

*** MPI_ERRORS_ARE_FATAL (goodbye)
mpirun noticed that job rank 0 with PID 10071 on node node001 exited on
signal 1 (Hangup).
I would not expect mx messages as communication should not go through
the mx card? (This is a twin dual core  shared memory node)
The same happens when testing on 2 nodes, using a hostfile.
I checked the state of the mx card with mx_endpoint_info and mx_info,
they are healthy and free.
What is missing here?
