Subject: [OMPI users] Trouble running OpenMPI compiled for x86_64 (either m32 or m64)
From: Beatty, Daniel D CIV NAVAIR, 474300D (daniel.beatty_at_[hidden])

Greetings all,
I am running into some trouble using OpenMPI with OSX 10.6.4 in a Kerberized XGrid environment. Note, I did not have this trouble before in the OSX 10.5.8 Kerberized XGrid environment.

The pattern of this trouble is as follows:
1. User submits a mpi job entering "mpirun -np 4 hello", to use a simple hello world MPI example.
2. mpirun will submit the job to XGrid.
3. A set of orted jobs get distributed to the machines, under the kerberized user's name.
4. In the case of the OpenMPI 1.2.8, 1.2.3 compiled for gfortran, 1.2.8 compiled for gfortran, and 1.2.9 that comes with OSX 10.6.4, it will actually spawn the processes on the machine.

It comes back with the following exception:

Abort trap

In the case of OpenMPI 1.4.2, I get even worse errors.

I do not know if this is an XGrid problem or a OMPI problem. But, it is definitely producing trouble.

Now some have suggested, having XGrid drive OpenMPI, but if XGRID_CONTROLLER_HOSTNAME is set, then how will OpenMPI not try to use XGrid as the launcher?

Any ideas as to how to fix this?
