Please test your blacs installation
Test programs are located at /usr/local/share/BLACS/TESTING
% cd /usr/local/share/BLACS/TESTING
% /usr/local/bin/mpd &
% /usr/local/bin/mpirun -np 4 ./xCbtest_MPI-FreeBSD
% /usr/local/bin/mpirun -np 4 ./xFbtest_MPI-FreeBSD
% /usr/local/bin/mpdallexit
Or, if you're using OpenMPI:
% cd /usr/local/share/BLACS/TESTING
% LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/mpi/openmpi/lib/ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH
% PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/mpi/openmpi/bin/ export PATH
% mpirun -np 4 ./xCbtest_MPI-FreeBSD
% mpirun -np 4 ./xFbtest_MPI-FreeBSD
You can change -np 4 to any number to meet your local environment.
