Hi Laurent,

Unfortunately, as far as I know, none of the current Open MPI developers has
access to a system with POE, so the POE process launcher has fallen into
disrepair. Attached is a patch that should allow you to compile (however, you
may also need to add #include <signal.h> to pls_poe_module.c).

Though this should allow the compile to succeed, launching with POE may not
work (it has not been tested for quite a while). If it doesn't work, you
should use the rsh launcher instead (pass -mca pls rsh on the command line,
or set the parameter using one of the methods here:

Sorry about this. We have an IBM machine at my institution which I am told
will have POE on it 'soon', but I am not sure when. Once it does, we will be
working on getting POE well supported again.

I should mention that we do use LoadLeveler on one of our machines and Open
MPI seems to work with it quite well. I would be interested in hearing how it
works for you.

Hope this helps, let me know if this works.
