Thanks for reporting this.

-pernode is just -npernode 1 - see the following ticket. Not sure when a fix will come out.

Dear All, 

I recently installed 1.4.2 version, and am having a problem specific to this version only (or so it seems). Before I lay out the details please note that  I am building 1.4.2 *exactly* the same as I built 1.4.1: same compiler options, same OpenIB and other system libraries, same configure options, and same everything. Version 1.4.1 doesn't have this issue

The error message is the following: 

$ mpirun -pernode ./hello

This last line is  from mpirun, not the executable. The executable is a simple hello world. All is well without the -pernode flag. All is well even when there is only one process per node (say, if so allocated over PBS) and -pernode flag is not used. 

Attached are what is asked herein:  except the Infiniband specific details. I'll be happy to provide if that is necessary, but note that the failure is the same if I used -mca btl self,tcp 

Thank you,
