Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Problem with OpenMPI (MX btl and mtl) and threads
From: Scott Atchley (atchley_at_[hidden])

Hi Francois,

I am not familiar with the internals of the OMPI code. Are you sure,
however, that threads are fully supported yet? I was under the
impression that thread support was still partial.

Can anyone else comment?
