Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Not pointing to correct libraries

I am not sure Fedora comes with Open MPI installed on it by default (at
least my FC13 did not). You may want to look at trying to install the
Open MPI from yum or some other package mananger. Or you can download
the source tarball from,
build and install it yourself.
