I am new into this mailing list, and am trying to install openMPI on Ubuntu

Basically my idea is to build a beowulf. Well right now i even dont have
lots of PC's for this purpose.

So I am planning to first use virtual machines on VmWare. I have installed
around four Virtual machines on my PC. And all of them can talk to each
other. I mean they are all networked together without any firewalls in

I downloaded openmpi-1.2.8.tar.gz, extracted it and executed the configure
script file.

This gave me lots of errors, and didnt suceed. How do I get this working

Any one please help me.

I am fairly good in using Linux but have no idea about openMPI.
I know C and C++ pretty well. And planning to learn using MPI.
