    Unhappy MPICH2 installation on fedora

    Dear all,

    i installed the mpich2 on fedora. Apparently the installation was successfull. However, when i tried to launch the mpd by executing the command "mpd &", i had the error message "mpd failed: gethostbyname_ex failed for hostname".

    Following the suggestions of a collegue from this forum, who explained me that the problem was related to the networking configuration on the machine, i renamed the machine host name to localhost.localdomain. However, i'm still having the same problem. The error message now is "mpd failed: gethostbyname_ex failed for localhost.localdomain".

    I performed the installation offline, without internet connection. Does anyone know if i have to be connected to install and launch the mpd? Do you have any other hint of what can be happenning?

    I would appreciate any help.

    Thanks a lot,
