Subject: [OMPI devel] 1.7.4rc2r30031 - OpenBSD-5 mpirun hangs
From: Paul Hargrove (phhargrove_at_[hidden])

With plenty of help from Jeff and Ralph's bug fixes in the past 24 hours, I
can now build OMPI for NetBSD. However, running even a simple example

Having set PATH and LD_LIBARY_PATH:
$ mpirun -np 1 examples/ring_c
just hangs

Output from "top" shows idle procs:
31841 phargrov 10 0 2140K 3960K sleep/1 nanosle 0:00 0.00% ring_c
13490 phargrov 2 0 2540K 4892K sleep/1 poll 0:00 0.00% orterun

Distrusting then env vars and relying instead on the auto-prefix behavior:
$ /home/phargrov/OMPI/openmpi-1.7-latest-openbsd5-amd64/INST/bin/mpirun -np
1 examples/ring_c
also hangs

Not sure exactly what to infer from this, but a "bogus" btl doesn't produce
any complaint, which may indicate how far startup got:
$ mpirun -mca btl bogus -np 1 examples/ring_c
Still hangs, and no complaint about the blt selection

All three cases above are singleton (-np 1) runs, but the behavior with
"-np 2" is the same.

This does NOT appear to be an ORTE problem:
-bash-4.2$ orterun -np 1 date
Fri Dec 20 14:11:42 PST 2013
-bash-4.2$ orterun -np 2 date
Fri Dec 20 14:11:45 PST 2013
Fri Dec 20 14:11:45 PST 2013

Let me know what sort of verbose mca parameters to set and I'll collect the
Compressed output of "ompi_info --all" is attached.
