hi everyone,

We freshly set up a GE, version N1GE 6.0u9
qmaster on a Xeon, with 2.6.9-42.ELsmp i686
sgeexecd  on Opteron nodes, with 2.6.9-42.ELsmp x86_64

Our first jobs seemed to run fine.
Parallel jobs did not run because MPI wasn't (and maybe isn't) set up 
So we got errors like "cannot run in PE "mpi" because it only offers 0 

By adding lamboot and lamhalt in the script, and adding some changes to 
the PE environment, these PE related errors disappeared.
Now we got a new error :
    error: can't unpack gdi request
    error: error unpacking gdi request: bad argument
    failed receiving gdi request

In your mailing list archive, this error was related to:
- having different GE versions. we don't.
- having too much in messages in read buffer. we don't (0).

The gdi error prevents us now from starting new jobs, parallel or not.
I have no idea about what gdi is. Does anyone know what happens ?
