Description Adam Lazur 2000-06-14 15:27:25 UTC
The conf.lam file which should be in $LAMHOME/boot is missing. This is
usually installed as part of the (IMO bassackwards) lam build/install

[alazur@nelson alazur]$ export LAMHOME=/usr
[alazur@nelson alazur]$ cat bhost 
[alazur@nelson alazur]$ vi bhost
[alazur@nelson alazur]$ export LAMHOME=/usr
[alazur@nelson alazur]$ cat bhost 
[alazur@nelson alazur]$ lamboot ~/bhost

LAM 6.3.1/MPI 2 C++/ROMIO - University of Notre Dame

hboot: cannot find process schema conf.lam: No such file or directory
LAM failed to fork/exec a process to launch the local LAM daemon
(lamd).  LAM first launches hboot to launch the local LAM daemon, so
several things could have gone wrong:

        - "hboot" itself could not be found (check your $PATH)
        - "hboot" failed for some reason (consult previous error messages,
          if any)
        - Too many processes exist and Unix could not fork another
lamboot encountered some error (see above) during the boot process,
and will now attempt to kill all nodes that it was previously able to
boot (if any).

Please wait for LAM to finish; if you interrupt this process, you may
have LAM daemons still running on remote nodes.

Comment 1 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-06-18 22:33:25 UTC
It's included now... but no need to report it doesn't work, I know. I need to
fix this badly written software soonish - their buildsystem is hopeless and
