Updated compat-openmpi packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The compat-openmpi packages contain shared libraries from earlier versions of Open Message Passing Interface (Open MPI). The libraries from previous releases have been compiled against the current version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, and the packages enable earlier programs to keep functioning properly.

Bug Fix

The compat-openmpi packages previously did not ensure compatibility with earlier versions of the Open MPI shared libraries. Consequently, the users failed to run certain applications using Open MPI on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.3 and later if those applications were compiled against Open MPI versions used on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.2 and earlier. After this update, the compat-openmpi packages now maintain compatibility with earlier versions of Open MPI on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
Users of compat-openmpi are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
