(resending... don't know why it didn't get to the list :(  )

You can also run install_execd on the master machine so that you can
at least run something via SGE with a 1-node cluster.

For hostname resolution, what do you see when you run "qhost"??

Also, search in the "users" list mail archive for the usage of
"gethostname" & "gethostbyname". Those utils are in
$SGE_ROOT/utilbin/<arch>/ , and they use the same code to resolve for
the hostname/IP.
