Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Open MPI, Segmentation fault

Based on my experiences, I would FULLY endorse (100% agree with) David
Zhang.
It is usually a coding or typo mistake.

At first, Ensure that array sizes and dimension are correct.

I experience that if openmpi is compiled with gnu compilers (not with Intel)
then it also point outs the subroutine exactly in which the fault occur.
have a try.

best,
AA
