parallel on linux
Dear everybody,

I have a PC with four processors and I want to use all of them in my simulations.

I have created a file called hosts.txt with the following lines (four times the name of my computer representing my four processors)


Them, I execute fluent in the command line:

fluent 3ddp -t4 -cnf=hosts.txt

and I have the following error:

Starting /home/isabel/Escritorio/Fluent.Inc/fluent6.3.26/multiport /mpi/lnx86/hp
mpirun: gethostbyname(isabel) failed
mpirun: Line 5: Invalid hostname: isabel

Does anybody know what can I do?
