First, I must qualify this reply; I am not familiar with Scyld's
implementation of mpi. Having said that, most versions of mpi that
I am familiar with have a -nolocal option for mpirun. This option
tells mpi to not run on the local node, i.e. the one you start it
on. An example...
# mpirun -nolocal -np 8 ./a.out
Hope that helps.
