Dear All,
I'm trying to set SGE6 to run parallel SMP jobs on the same dual 
processor node.
All hosts are dual machines and are have two slots in queue.

I've created with qconf -am smp a following file:
pe_name           smp
slots             2
user_lists        NONE
xuser_lists       NONE
start_proc_args   /bin/true
stop_proc_args    /bin/true
allocation_rule   $fill_up
control_slaves    FALSE
job_is_first_task FALSE
urgency_slots     min

I've tried both $fill_up and $pe_slots but in both cases when I submit with
-pe smp 2 the job stuck as pending
29 0.60500 g03-test    testuser      qw    06/04/2006 15:22:14     2

Btw, when I tried standard parallel environment make with -pe make 2
the job was allocated on two nodes each with one slot used (however
as program is "smp" one, it  started both treads on one node and the other
one had load=0.0)

Can somebody point me out where I'm making an error?

with kind regards
