Subject: Re: [OMPI users] hosfile issue of openmpi-1.7.4rc2

No, I didn't use Torque this time.

This issue is caused only when it is not in the managed
environment - namely, orte_managed_allocation is false
(and orte_set_slots is NULL).

Under the torque management, it works fine.

I hope you can understand the situation.
