It doesn't matter - 1.3 isn't going to launch another daemon on the local node.

The problem here is that OMPI isn't recognizing your local host as being "local" - i.e., it thinks that the host mpirun is executing on is somehow not the the local host. This has come up before with ubuntu - you might search the user mailing list for "ubuntu" to see earlier threads on this issue.

I forget the final solution, but those earlier threads will explain what needs to be done. I'm afraid this is something quite specific to ubuntu.

I gather you must be running a version of the old 1.2 series? Or are 
you running 1.3?

It does make a difference as to the nature of the problem, and the 
recommended solution.

Thanks
