Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Tracing the library using gdb and xterm

Krishna,

If you are using ssh to connect to the second machine you need to be
sure that ssh X11 forwarding is enabled and you may need to have mpi
use ssh -X or ssh -Y to connect to the second machine. That is how
the DISPLAY gets set using ssh.
