problems in GPL Version 3.2.1 Revision 387

Postby xixi » Wed Apr 08, 2009 3:57 am

Dear users and developers;
I have tested the new V387, and tested a CNT (8,0) case,
after I got the KSS file and want to go on the GW calculation, the last line of r_xxvxc_ppa_gw0 told me

- S/N 007676 ---------------------------- v.03.02.01 r.387 -

[ERROR] STOP signal received while in :[06] EX(change)S(elf-energy) and Vxc potential

[ERROR][NetCDF] NetCDF: Variable not found

but the netcdf is included in the compilation, could you give any suggestions? Thanks!

below is the input files

Hallo Xi Zhu,

I think that the installation of netcdf is OK, and I would say that the behavior you observe is due to the limitation of netcdf with large files.
In fact I had a similar strange behavior of netcdf when treating large systems => large databases (that is larger than 2Gb). I do not know if this may be your case (from your input I would say your databases should be quite big) but what can help you is to use the database fragmentation option, that is adding -S when you call yambo for execution (yambo -H for more details)

It seems strange to me to have an exchange self-energy database larger the 2Gb. xixi please post the following informations

  1. the result of the command >yambo -D
  2. Your latest log file (l_*)
  3. a list of all the files in your working directory

use tha attachments to upload the files. Simple zip all of them or add the extension .txt
