#list available MPI versions:
$ mpi-selector --list
impi_intel-4.1.0.024
impi_intel-4.1.1.036
intel_mpi_intel64-4.0.3.008

mvapich2_gcc-1.9a2
mvapich2_intel
openmpi-1.5.4_gcc
openmpi-1.5.4_intel

#see the currently used MPI version:
$ mpi-selector --query
default:impi_intel-4.1.0.024
level:user

#set the MPI version:
$ mpi-selector --set impi_intel-4.1.0.024

Modifications will be active after logging in again.
