Subject: Re: [OMPI users] machine exited on signal 11 (Segmentation fault).
From: Rohan Deshpande (rohand87_at_[hidden])

Hi Jeffy,

I checked the SEND RECV buffers and it looks ok to me. The code I have sent
works only when I statically initialize the array.

The code fails everytime I use malloc to initialize the array.

Can you please look at code and let me know what is wrong.
