[Mauiusers] Getting started

hello all, I'm working on a machine that has maui pre-installed and
I'm trying to get it running with little luck.  Here's what I know
about the installation...

this was the command line used to config maui
./configure --with-pbs=/opt/torque --with-machine=master
--with-spooldir=/var/spool/maui --prefix=/opt/maui CC=gcc
LDFLAGS='-L/usr/lib64 -L/usr/X11R6/lib64' --libdir=/opt/maui/lib

make && make install were used.  All of the paths in the above match.

my maui.cfg is at the end of this mail btw.

I tried running in both normal and test modes (I don't have the two
.trace files so sim mode doesn't work) and when I run any command, I
get the error:

[root at master maui]# showq
ERROR:    lost connection to scheduler
08/12 17:10:02 ERROR:    cannot request service (status)

maui, torque and pbs_mom are all running:
10855 ?        Ss     0:02 /opt/torque/sbin/pbs_mom
10859 pts/5    S      0:00 /opt/maui/sbin/maui
10863 ?        Ss     0:00 /opt/torque/sbin/pbs_server


I'm really not sure where to go from here.  I've used pbs_sched plenty
but this is the first time I've tried maui.

Any help would be VERY appreciated.
thanks for your time
decon
