when you use the command line qsub, you have to use the option -V to export all 
environment variables (LD_LIBRARY_PATH ...) to the job. This seems to happen, 
when you use the tree-bottom in qmon.

Is this working: Put -V in the default request

I don't know (I can't test it), but can't you simply create a symbolic link 
from lx24-x86 to lx26-x86 in the directories?


BTW: You don't have to install the execd, it's sufficient to start the daemons
