Do you know what r# of 1.6 you were trying to compile?  Is this via the tarball or svn?

thanks,

Hi,

I compiled OpenMPI 1.6 on a 64bit Solaris ultrasparc machine.
Compilation and installation worked without a problem. However,
when trying to run an application with mpirun I always faced
this error:

It looks like orte_init failed for some reason; your parallel process is
likely to abort.  There are many reasons that a parallel process can
fail during orte_init; some of which are due to configuration or
environment problems.  This failure appears to be an internal failure;
here's some additional information (which may only be relevant to an
Open MPI developer):

  orte_rmcast_base_select failed
  --> Returned value Error (-1) instead of ORTE_SUCCESS


After some digging I found that the following patch seems to fix the
problem (at least the application seems to run correct now):
