Thank to my friend Yann Mauffrey, I have strongly reduce the required
virtual memory just by changing my mpi distribution. Under open-mpi 1.0.1
the required virtual memory is too important (600 MO) compare to the one I
need with lam-mpi (50 MO). I am going to send an email to open-mpi mail
list in order to inform then about this.
