Subject: Re: [OMPI users] a question about mpirun

It seems that you have mixed an "old" LAM-MPI installation with OpenMPI.

To make sure your OpenMPI installation is ok you could try to use the
complete path to mpirun:
  /data1/cluster/openmpi/bin/mpirun -np 1 /tmp/openmpi-1.4.3/examples/ring_c

You should also make sure that the compile-command is the one of
OpenMPI and not of LAM MPI.
( /data1/cluster/openmpi/bin/mpiCC or something like that)

Check your PATH environment variable to make sure it doesn't contain
any of the LAM MPI directories,
and make sure you set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable correctly (see

Hope this helps
