For some reason I have two copies of mpirun one in /usr/bin/ and one in
/usr/mpi_beowulf/bin. But when  I try running some code with the copy in
/usr/mpi_beowulf/bin I get the following error "p0_4360: p4_error:
net_create_slave: host not a bproc node: -3 p4_error: latest msg from
perror: Success" but it does have all the mpi options such as -nonlocal
etc, it shows me all these when I type something like "mpirun -h". However
I can run code with the mpirun from /usr/bin. But  when I tried doing
/usr/bin.mpirun -np 4 -nolocal ./a.out I get the folowing error "Failed to
exec target program: No such file or directory". Do you have any ideas?
