Dear NAMD-users,

I stuck again with the working of NAMD using LAM. I installed ssh, openssh,
libaio and other necessary libraries, but still get the following error. If
anybody came across such error, will you please let me know about how to
resolve it.

[sam_at_xyz Linux-i686-MPI]$ lamboot -v /home/sam/.nodelist

LAM 7.1.4/MPI 2 C++/ROMIO - Indiana University

n-1<962> ssi:boot:base:linear: booting n0 (100.120.10.04)
n-1<962> ssi:boot:base:linear: booting n1 (100.120.10.41)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
LAM failed to execute a process on the remote node "100.120.10.41".
LAM was not trying to invoke any LAM-specific commands yet -- we were
simply trying to determine what shell was being used on the remote
host.

LAM tried to use the remote agent command "/bin/ssh"
to invoke "echo $SHELL" on the remote node.

This usually indicates an authentication problem with the remote
agent, some other configuration type of error in your .cshrc or
.profile file, or you were unable to executable a command on the
remote node for some other reason. The following is a list of items
that you should check on the remote node:

        - You have an account and can login to the remote machine
        - Incorrect permissions on your home directory (should
          probably be 0755)
        - Incorrect permissions on your $HOME/.rhosts file (if you are
          using rsh -- they should probably be 0644)
        - You have an entry in the remote $HOME/.rhosts file (if you
          are using rsh) for the machine and username that you are
          running from
        - Your .cshrc/.profile must not print anything out to the
          standard error
        - Your .cshrc/.profile should set a correct TERM type
        - Your .cshrc/.profile should set the SHELL environment
          variable to your default shell

Try invoking the following command at the unix command line:

        /bin/ssh -x 100.120.10.41 -n 'echo $SHELL'

You will need to configure your local setup such that you will *not*
be prompted for a password to invoke this command on the remote node.
No output should be printed from the remote node before the output of
the command is displayed.

When you can get this command to execute successfully by hand, LAM
will probably be able to function properly.
