Dear all!

I'm new to NAMD. Now I'm trying to build NAMD on the Linux cluster with
InfiniBand, Intel Xeon E5-2690 (Sandy Bridge) and Intel Xeon Phi 7110X
(KNC) processors. CentOS release 6.2. But when I compiled charm-6.8.2
according to instructions, I got the following error:

-sh-4.1$ ./charmrun ++mpiexec +p4 ./pgm
Charmrun> scalable start enabled.
Charmrun> IBVERBS version of charmrun
mpiexec_login: cannot connect to local mpd (/tmp/mpd2.console_kusmaev);
possible causes:
  1. no mpd is running on this host
  2. an mpd is running but was started without a "console" (-n option)
Charmrun> error attaching to node '':
Timeout waiting for node-program to connect

I don't have an idea how to fix it. Thanks for any help. A full log is
