Hello PETSc's users,

I have just started to use PETSc and when I try to solve the matricial 
system I obtain the following error sentences:

[0]PETSC ERROR: MatLUFactorNumeric_SeqAIJ() line 538 in 
[0]PETSC ERROR: Detected zero pivot in LU factorization
[0]PETSC ERROR: Zero pivot row 277017 value 2.16144e-10 tolerance 1e-12

I would be really grateful if you could say to me where the problem 
could be in order to sort it out.

Thanks in advance and best regards
