I'm running the Debian package of OpenMPI in a chroot (with /proc
mounted properly), and orte_init is failing as follows:

$ uptime
 12:51:55 up 12 days, 21:30, 0 users, load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00
$ orterun -np 1 uptime
[new-host-3:18250] [0,0,0] ORTE_ERROR_LOG: Error in file runtime/orte_init_stage1.c at line 312
It looks like orte_init failed for some reason; your parallel process is
likely to abort. There are many reasons that a parallel process can
fail during orte_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 developer):

  orte_pls_base_select failed
  --> Returned value -1 instead of ORTE_SUCCESS

[new-host-3:18250] [0,0,0] ORTE_ERROR_LOG: Error in file runtime/orte_system_init.c at line 42
[new-host-3:18250] [0,0,0] ORTE_ERROR_LOG: Error in file runtime/orte_init.c at line 52
Open RTE was unable to initialize properly. The error occured while
attempting to orte_init(). Returned value -1 instead of ORTE_SUCCESS.

Note running with -v produces no more output than this. Running orted
in the background doesn't seem to help.

What could be wrong? Does orterun not run in a chroot environment?
What more can I do to investigate further?
