Bypass the 0.0.1.tar.gz git download

Post by Bruno » Wed Jan 13, 2021 11:12 am

Hello!

I've been trying to compile yambo 5.0.0 on a cluster where I don't have access to neither git or wget downloads. So when I'm doing ./configure [options], it starts download the libraries 0.0.1.tar.gz and it stays frozen there because there's no way to download it. I've manually downloaded the tar file and scp inside the cluster but I'm not really sure where to put it and if I should change some files to skip the download part. I've tried some combinations but no success.

Can you please guide me where to put the 0.0.1.tar.gz and which file should I change?

Thank you very much!

Hi Bruno,

In order to workaround the problem with wget you have two options:
* download manually the tar balls and place then in yambo/lib/archive (then issue make from the yambo home as usual)
* Try to use as many libraries from the system as possible (providing the path vi configure), and resort to the option above for those not available

take care

Hello Andrea,

Thank you for the quick reply. I've actually already downloaded all of them and put in on the yambo/lib/archive, and it solves half of the problem. This 0.0.1.tar.gz seems to be download to the yambo/lib/yambo folder, I did tried to just put the tar there and also at the archive folder but it does not work for this specific one.

ok, now I better understand the problem.
The procedure involving the 0.0.1 tarball is rather new and needs to be properly fixed for the case without access to the network.

Here is a possible manual workaround. A better solution will be provided on the git repo in the next hours.

workaround:
(1) place a copy of 0.0.1.tar.gz in ~yambo/lib/yambo
(2) fix a small bug in configure to avoid re-downloading the tarball when already present
(3) open the tarball and replace the ~yambo/lib/yambo/driver folder with the driver folder from the tarball

Concerning (2):
This is the change to apply to configure:

Code: Select all

diff --git a/configure b/configure
index 888114361..e83c85315 100755
--- a/configure
+++ b/configure

     VERSION="0.0.1"
     TARBALL="${VERSION}.tar.gz"
Alternatively, you can edit yambo/config/m4/yambo_libraries.m4, according to:
