Machine specific configure scripts

Install on your local machine using internal libraries

The simplest install of yambo is the one using internal libraries and compiled with gfortran. This is useful to test the code on your local machine, or in order to easily follow the yambo tutorials.

You can run the following configure script (named for example which should work for yambo 5.0 on Linux machines:


./configure FC=gfortran \
 --with-extlibs-path=$YAMBO_EXT_LIBS \
 --enable-keep-extlibs \
 --enable-time-profile \
 --enable-msgs-comps \
 --enable-keep-src \
 --enable-memory-profile \
 --enable-int-linalg \
 --enable-par-linalg \
 --enable-netcdf-output \


The GPL version of Yambo is already installed on different HPC systems around the world, here we report some of them: Niflheim at Technical University of Denmark SP6 at CINECA Arina at SGI at Universidad del Pais Vasco. Core.Sam at University of Pittsburgh.


Below are some configure options that have been used in the past. Of course, since compilers and architectures vary a lot, there are no guarantees that they will work on your system. Be particularly careful when specifying FCFLAGS, as you may override settings which are necessary for compilation, e.g. -nofor_main with ifort.

CH: Suggest to list/group these in order of architecture, linux, IBM, Cray, OS/X, etc

export CC=xlc_r
export F77=xlf_r
export FC=xlf90_r

./configure --build=powerpc-ibm --with-fftw=/cineca/prod/libraries/fftw/3.2.2/xl--10.1/lib 

To compile, use GNU make: ./gmake yambo interfaces GNU/Linux: ifort

ifort 11.0 with netCDF and iotk/p2y 4.0 support, serial ./configure FC=ifort --with-netcdf-lib=/usr/local/libraries/netcdf/4.0.1/ifort--11.1/lib --with-netcdf-include= /usr/local/libraries/netcdf/4.0.1/ifort--11.1/include --with-iotk=/opt/espresso/4.1.2/iotk/ --with-p2y=4.0 --with-blacs=no BLAS, LAPACK and FFTW linked using the mkl libraries

The correct linking path can be found here (thanks to Giovanni Pizzi for this!!!). A typical configure command line that can be used to link the mkl BLAS, LAPACK and FFTW is

./configure FC=ifort \
