Subject: Re: [OMPI users] OpenMPI Segmentation fault (11)

Hi Jack

Have you tried to run your aplication under valgrind?
Even though applications generallay run slower under valgrind,
it may detect memory errors before the actual crash happens.

The best would be to start a terminal window for each of your processes
so you can see valgrind's output for each process separately.
