Dear ABINIT friends, I'm currently performing STRING calculations.

Re: Kxc not implemented for GGA!

The unreasonable energy values seem to be due to the PAW data set.

Gregory is currently working on/testing it.

I hope to continue this soon.

Hello ryne60, onion2440 and ABINIT friends, The point is not the values of the parameters. The point is the comparison with VASP calculation.
