Greetings,

As reported upstream [1], openmpi binaries and mpirun don't work in a
chroot environment, as mpich does.

As you know, I'm also on that list --- but I didn't notice any
follow-up or conclusion.  Is there anything actionable here?

Yeah, I was disappointed too.  The "actionable" is pretty much debugging
and fixing.

Fortunately, I will have some time -- and a client mandate -- to do some
of this 2-3 weeks from now.

Ack. The upstream guys are actually rather good and helpful. But I guess we
need a debugging lead first, eg whether it's just 'our' chroots (maybe once
again implying compiler/linker configs) or whether it is generic.

Cheers, Dirk

severity 494046 +important
thanks

Hi,

I think this bug is really quite important, there are a number of my
packages where I cannot run the test suite during build because openmpi
fails instantly in the buildd chroot.  Did somebody test whether the 1.5
devlopment series fixes this bug?

Feel free to disagree and downgrade.


Cheers,

Michael

Thanks to Johannes Ring, I have been made aware of this work-around (see
http://lists.debian.org/debian-science/2012/03/msg00005.html):

export OMPI_MCA_plm_rsh_agent=/bin/false

Setting this environment variable makes mpi-based test suites run fine
in a buildd chroot.
