comment How to attach terminal to detached process?
@rustyx: Untested, but this should work: create a file rather than a pipe, touch /tmp/thefile. Stdout is 1, so call close (1); also, use the correct permissions for writing: call open ("/tmp/thefile", 0400). The echo… is, of course, not needed.

comment Why do I have to escape a “dot” twice?
@Thushi: No. This has nothing to do with the fact that you are using a (or several) pipe characters, but applies even for grep \\. my_file. The commandline is interpreted by the shell, using the first \ to escape the second one, so one \ is passed literally to grep. The dot . is not special to the shell, so it is passed verbatim anyway. Grep then reads the (single) \ and uses it to escape the dot ..

comment Missing/broken dependancies on OpenSUSE, normal?
I wouldn't re-install. A pattern is merely a set of constraints (i.e. requirements and conflicts), so removing it does not change the system. Moreover, nothing should be broken right now (unless you selected a solution break xxx… when installing software at some point.

Editing your questing to add requested information is fine. See below for my answer.

No, this is not normal. Could you post the actual output from e.g. zypper in apache2?

comment Linux can't recognize the right password when ssh'ing?
could a password to a remote server be relevant? Yes, that is what port forwarding means: everything you do to port 2200 is forwarded to the (remote) port 22, so that is where you connect, and that is also where your password is checked.

In that case, are you sure you are entering the correct password for the remote server?

You say that you have set up port forwarding, but did not show how. Are you perhaps trying to connect to another machine? Besides, take a look at the logs (depending on your distribution, it might be /var/log/secure). Finally, note that changes to sshd_config do not take effect unless sshd is restarted (or instructed to reload the config).

comment How to debug MPI timing problems
@bersch: I did run a benchmark without MPI. The switch was not fully loaded, but I tried to duplicate the MPI setup as closely as possible: four nodes exchanging messages in a ring. As to network settings, can Infiniband parameters be changed via /proc/sys/net?
