Hi,

I'm trying to run the application on my Linux workstation using the command given in the documentation:

  1. mpirun -np 2 $NWCHEM_TOP/bin/$NWCHEM_TARGET/nwchem input.nw

However, that has failed and gave the error shown below. Any advice why is that?

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_ess_base_build_nidmap failed
--> Returned value Data unpack would read past end of buffer (-26) instead of ORTE_SUCCESS

      • The MPI_Init() function was called before MPI_INIT was invoked.
      • This is disallowed by the MPI standard.
      • Your MPI job will now abort.
[cs-nsl17:6616] Abort before MPI_INIT completed successfully; not able to guarantee that all other processes were killed!

mpirun has exited due to process rank 0 with PID 6616 on
node cs-nsl17 exiting improperly. There are two reasons this could occur:

1. this process did not call "init" before exiting, but others in
the job did. This can cause a job to hang indefinitely while it waits
for all processes to call "init". By rule, if one process calls "init",
then ALL processes must call "init" prior to termination.

2. this process called "init", but exited without calling "finalize".
By rule, all processes that call "init" MUST call "finalize" prior to
exiting or it will be considered an "abnormal termination"

This may have caused other processes in the application to be
terminated by signals sent by mpirun (as reported here).
