Subject: [OMPI users] --enable-progress-threads broken in 1.5.3?
From: Paul Kapinos (kapinos_at_[hidden])

Hi OpenMPI folks,

I've tried to install /1.5.3 version with aktivated progress threads
(just to try it out) in addition to --enable-mpi-threads. The
installation was fine, I also could build binaries, but each mpiexec
call hangs forever silently. With the very same configuration options
but without --enable-progress-threads, everything runs fine.

So I wonder about the --enable-progress-threads is broken, or maybe I
did something wrong?

The configuration line was:

./configure --with-openib --with-lsf --with-devel-headers
--enable-contrib-no-build=vt --enable-mpi-threads
--enable-progress-threads --enable-heterogeneous --enable-cxx-exceptions
--enable-orterun-prefix-by-default <........>

where <........> contain prefix and some compiler-specific stuff.

All versions compilerd (GCC, Intel, PGI, Sun Studio compilers, 23bit and
64bit) behaves the very same way.

Best wishes,
