Subject: [OMPI users] init failing

Hi everyone,

I am trying to build my own system for my nodes - minimalistic. I tried
to make things easy so I didn't even recompile openMPI for it, I just
copied everything from my Ubuntu installation (I know, it's very dirty,
but I stick to KISS :) ). Before, things just worked perfectly with the
libraries. I only recompile executable binaries, not Glibc (not openMPI,
I also didn't succeed compiling openMPI but that's a different story).

So, as I keep trying to run Hello world! program, I keep getting the
same error message every time. Everything in the system is fine from my
point of view. The error message is this:

[user:24307] mca: base: components_open: component timer / linux open
function failed
It looks like opal_init failed for some reason; your parallel process is
likely to abort. There are many reasons that a parallel process can
fail during opal_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):

  opal_carto_base_select failed
  --> Returned value -13 instead of OPAL_SUCCESS
[user:24307] [[INVALID],INVALID] ORTE_ERROR_LOG: Not found in
file ../../../orte/runtime/orte_init.c at line 77
[user:24307] [[INVALID],INVALID] ORTE_ERROR_LOG: Not found in
file ../../../orte/orted/orted_main.c at line 315

I tried googling and searching the archives, nothing gave me a hint.
What might be missing? Should I really try to recompile openMPI? What
needs to be on/off in the kernel? Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
