I use a bunch of different machines (home directory shared via NFS) to run a mixture of prp clients, sieve clients and P-1 clients. To make that a bit easier I have written some scripts to start any client on any machine. Basically I have a script called on that two arguments a hostname and a job name, it then logs in on the given host, changes to the directory given be the job name, and starts another script called job.sh. Apart from some commands that just help me find out what jobs run on what computer, the job.sh scripts I created for mprime looks like this: Code: #! /bin/sh cd ~/17orbust/p-1_1 ./mprime -A1 & and Code: #! /bin/sh cd ~/17orbust/p-1_2 ./mprime -A2 & When I try to run these two scripts on the same machine (called shannon), the following happens: Code: grove@galois > ./on shannon p-1_1 grove@galois > ./on shannon p-1_2 grove@galois > Another mprime is already running! What am I doing wrong
