I do have DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH set to the same paths as LD_LIBRARY_PATH. This does not resolve the problem. The code still hangs on MPI::Init().

Another thing I tried is I recompiled openmpi with the debug flags activated:
./configure --prefix=$HOME/tools/openmpi --enable-debug
make install

Then, I attached to the running process using gdb. I tried to do a back trace and see where it was hanging up at, but all I got was this:
Attaching to process 45231

This output from gdb was not terribly helpful to me.

We have occasionally had a problem like this when we set LD_LIBRARY_PATH only. On OSX you may need to set DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH instead ( set it to the same lib directory )

Can you try that and see if it resolves the problem?

I do have these two environment variables set:


Running mpirun seems to work fine with a simple command, like hostname:

$ )mpirun -n 2 hostname<><>

I am trying to run the simple hello_cxx example from the openmpi distribution, compiled as such:
mpic++ -g -o hello_cxx

It compiles fine, without warning or error. However, when I go to run the example, it stalls on the MPI::Init() command:
mpirun -np 1 hello_cxx
It never errors out or crashes. It simply hangs.

I am using the same mpic++ and mpirun version:
$ )which mpirun

$ )which mpic++

Not quite sure what else to check.
