Note that it is not advisable to run autogen from a distribution tarball.

Specifically: we include the autogen script for advanced users who want to 
tweak their own Open MPI copy (without cloning from git), but 99.99% of users 
can just run "./configure ..." directly (without first running autogen).  If 
you're an advanced user and want / need to run autogen -- cool, go for it.  But 
if you're just downloading an Open MPI tarball and are trying to build / 
install it, there's no need to run autogen.

Put simply: in official release tarballs of Open MPI, we've already run autogen 
for you.

My name is Riddhi and I am a Graduate Research Assistant in the Dept. of 
Physics & Astronomy at Purdue University. About a month ago I correctly 
configured openmpi on my mac and the ‘mpirun -np 2 ./hello.c’ ran correctly. 
But today, it gave me the following error:

[Riddhis-MacBook-Air.local:89582] [[56525,0],0] ORTE_ERROR_LOG: Bad parameter 
in file orted/pmix/pmix_server.c at line 262
[Riddhis-MacBook-Air.local:89582] [[56525,0],0] ORTE_ERROR_LOG: Bad parameter 
in file ess_hnp_module.c at line 667
It looks like orte_init failed for some reason; your parallel process is
likely to abort.  There are many reasons that a parallel process can
fail during orte_init; some of which are due to configuration or
environment problems.  This failure appears to be an internal failure;
here's some additional information (which may only be relevant to an
Open MPI developer):

  pmix server init failed
  --> Returned value Bad parameter (-5) instead of ORTE_SUCCESS

I tried to google this error and the only thing I found was to change the 
TMPDIR name to a shorter name. But I don’t think I understand what it’s asking 
me to do. Kindly help since I am not able to understand what went wrong in one 
month and mpirun stopped working.

Thank you
