I am ruuning another code which does not need scalapack and blacs with openmpi directly, it has been written by fortran as well. The parallel run is happily going on.

The "hello world" and the ring programs in the examples are also working fine!!!

As you can see in my prev. email, in the code there's an "arch.make" file in which I have to mention the MPI address + scalapack, blacs lapack and blas library addresses. Could this "killing" originate from this file. Because the scalapack installer is installed correctly the tests are running fine and the openmpi is functioning.

I have had enclosed arch.make in my prev. email.
