I have a problem running openmpi under OS 10.4.10. My program runs
fine under debian x86_64 on an opteron but under OS X on a number of
Mac Book and Mac Book Pros, I get the following immediately on
startup. This smells like a common problem but I could find anything
relevant anywhere. Can anyone provide a hint or better yet a solution?



Program received signal EXC_BAD_ACCESS, Could not access memory.
