Looks like you hit several MPI-related mailing lists with this same

It's hard to say without more detail, but it sounds like the MPI job
itself is failing to be launched properly. You might want to check
things like your PATH, LD_LIBRARY_PATH, etc. You might also want to
try launching non-MPI jobs and/or trivial MPI jobs (e.g., the MPI
equivalent of "hello world") as diagnostics.

Hope that helps.
