Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Open MPI on Cray XE6 / Gemini
From: Howard Pritchard (howardp_at_[hidden])

Hello Christoph,

When ompi is configured with the lanl/cray_xe6/optimized-nopanasa,
you have to use the 'aprun' launch command.

Trying running your HelloWorldMPI as

aprun -n 1 HelloWorldMPI

Also, this particular config of ompi will not run in the 'cluster
compatability'
mode environment.

Hope this helps,

Howard
