------------------------


Using tight PVM integration fails with the following error:

[pvmd pid32440] 03/19 16:02:43 usage: pvmd3 [-ddebugmask] [-nhostname]
[hostfile]
[pvmd pid32440] 03/19 16:02:43 pvmbailout(0)

Reason:
Tight PVM integration starts the pmvd daemon with additional parameter -f which
is, dispite documented in the man page, not implemented in the source.

Thanks! I'm changing subcomponent and ownership.

In version 3.4.5 version of PVM it's available. Subroutine "slave_config" will check additonal parameters
after the main scan of the paramters removed the common ones. This results in (still pvmd.c):

                        case 'f':
                                dof = 0;
                                break;

If the Tight Integration is not working in your setup, maybe we can move to the users list to look into this
behavior.

Thanks for your comment. You're of course right, sorry for not looking deep
enough into the source, but it does not work in my case and if I start pvmd
manually with 'pvmd -f hostfile' where hostfile contains two lines like

host1
host2

it leads to the following error:

kink: pvmd -f /tmp/hostfile
[pvmd pid29554] 03/21 16:26:48 usage: pvmd3 [-ddebugmask] [-nhostname] hostfile]
[pvmd pid29554] 03/21 16:26:48 pvmbailout(0)

which I interpret as the -f parameter is not known. Users and Xusers lists are
both empty.
