Re^4: Problems with FF in Ubuntu 9.10 after a kernel update

Reinaldo Pis Diez

Thanks Davide! Your post confirm that it is in fact a problem related to one of the last updates in Ubuntu, both in 9.10 and 10.04.

The error is of the same kind of the one reported by Reinaldo and it affects both serial and parallel runs (under different version of MPI; I currently use the FireFly version 7.1.G with MPICH, MPICH2 and openMPI).
