Hi Reuti:

  Sorry I was very unclear in my last email. I'll try to improve it here.

  First thanks for your response, second I am familiar with that
  very well written and helpful HOW-TO.

  I succeeded to get checkpointing and GE working together for
  serial applications.

  I now need to do the same for parallel applications.
  Since I am using BLCR to do checkpointing, and LAM has integrated
  BLCR I decided to try LAM (7.1.4).

  I managed to get things working from the command line, but from
  GE when I do the checkpoint those checkpointed files can't restart
  the application. Neither from GE or the command line.

  I am getting  kernel: Skipping a socket

  I'd appreciate any ideas.
