I think you're slightly confused -- LAM/MPI and Open MPI are two
different software projects that implement the same standard (MPI).
This list is for supporting Open MPI. Another list (
) is available for supporting LAM/MPI. You might want to refer to the
"Getting Help" page on the LAM/MPI site (
). I suspect that your problem has to do with your hostfile, and you
should check the LAM/MPI user's guide for the answer.

But be aware that LAM/MPI is in maintenance mode -- it is being
deprecated in favor of Open MPI. See the announcement at the top of
LAM/MPI's home page.

Good luck.
