Dear all,

I have recently installed OpenMPI 1.1.2 on a OpenSSI cluster running Fedora
core 3. I tested a simple hello world mpi program (attached) and it runs ok
as root. However, if I run the same program under normal user, it gives the
following error:

[eddie_at_oceanus:~/home2/mpi_tut]$ mpirun -np 2 tut01
[oceanus:125089] mca_common_sm_mmap_init: ftruncate failed with errno=13
[oceanus:125089] mca_mpool_sm_init: unable to create shared memory mapping (
It looks like MPI_INIT failed for some reason; your parallel process is
likely to abort. There are many reasons that a parallel process can
fail during MPI_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

  PML add procs failed
  --> Returned "Out of resource" (-2) instead of "Success" (0)
*** An error occurred in MPI_Init
*** before MPI was initialized
*** MPI_ERRORS_ARE_FATAL (goodbye)

Am I need to give certain permission to the user in order to oversubscribe

Thanks in advance,
