Subject: [OMPI users] After OS Update MPI_Init fails on one host
From: Kevin H. Hobbs (hobbsk_at_[hidden])

I just upgraded the OS on one of my workstations from Fedora 17 to 18
and now I can't run even the simplest MPI programs.

I filed a bug report with Fedora's bug tracker :

My simple program is attached as mpi_simple.c

mpicc works :

  mpicc -g -o mpi_simple mpi_simple.c

I can even take the generated program to another computer and it runs fine.

I can run mon MPI programs with mpirun :

  mpirun -n 4 hostname

When I run a program that calls MPI_Init I get an error which includes :

It looks like orte_init failed for some reason; your parallel process is
likely to abort. There are many reasons that a parallel process can
fail during orte_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):

  orte_util_nidmap_init failed
  --> Returned value Error (-1) instead of ORTE_SUCCESS

The output of :

 mpirun -n 1 mpi_simple

is attached as error.txt

I suspect it matters that this is a lenovo S10 with what /proc/cpuinfo
calls a "Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6600"

I did a bit of poking around in gdb but I don't know what I'm looking for.

Does anybody have an idea what's going on?
