Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Tracing the library using gdb and xterm

Hi Rolf,
            Thanks for that. There is still one minor problem, though. The
xwindow is getting spawned on the remote machine and not on my local
machine. It now looks like,
mpirun --prefix /usr/local -hostfile machines -x DISPLAY -x PATH -np 2
xterm -e gdb peruse_ex1
            Please let me know what i can do to have it displayed on my
machine. I have the DISPLAY variable set to 0.0 on both the machines and I
am ssh-ing into the other machine by using the -X switch.
