I installed openmpi 1.1.2 on two 686 boxes runing ubuntu 6.10.
Followed the instructions given in the FAQ. Nevertheless, I get the
following message:

[bernie-1:05053] ERROR: A daemon on node failed to start as
[bernie-1:05053] ERROR: There may be more information available from
[bernie-1:05053] ERROR: the remote shell (see above).
[bernie-1:05053] ERROR: The daemon exited unexpectedly with status 127.

now, I've been browsing the web, including the mailing lists, and it
appears that the error should be that I have not declared the variables

export PATH="/usr/local/openmpi/bin:${PATH}"
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/local/openmpi/lib:${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}"

at the node, wich I have. I have even created all the posible folders
proposed at the FAQ for remote loggins, although I'm using bash.

If I do a ssh user_at_remote_node, I can connect without being asked for a
password, and if I type mpif90, I get: "gfortran: no input files", wich
should mean that indeed the PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH are being updated on
the remote logging.

But, if I do:

bash$ mpirun --prefix /usr/local/openmpi -np 2 prueba.bin

the result is:

Failed to find the following executable:

Host: bernie-3
Executable: prueba.bin

Cannot continue.
mpirun noticed that job rank 0 with PID 0 on node "" exited
on signal 4.

I've been looking around, but have not been able to find what does the
signal 4 means.

Just in case, I was running an example program wich runs fine at my
university cluster. Nevertheless, decided to run an even simpler one, wich
I include, for it may be that the error is there (I definitly hope

program test

  use mpi

  implicit none

  integer :: myid,sizze,ierr

  call MPI_INIT(ierr)
  call MPI_COMM_SIZE(MPI_COMM_WORLD,sizze,ierr)
  call MPI_COMM_RANK(MPI_COMM_WORLD,myid,ierr)

  print *,"I'm using ",sizze," processors"
  print *,"of wich I'm the number ",myid

  call MPI_FINALIZE(ierr)

end program test

This is the first time I have installed -and use- any parallel programing
program or library, and I'm doing it as a personal proyect for a graduate
curse, so any help will be greatly appreciated!

Best regards
