Segmentation fault (core dumped) problem in NLO calculation

Hello Dear abinit usrs,
I am trying to repeat the NLO calculation of BaTiO3 recently. After much effort, i still can not obtain the results. Hope someone could help me out.
I am sorry i cannot using the 'Upload attachment' for my input file, so i have to paste them instead.
This is my structure optimization input file

and the output seems everything is OK except several WARNINGS about ‘Potential-based CG line minimization has trouble to converge.’,and then i search the forum one post said it is not a problem,because the wavefuction is actually converged
then i do the NLO calculation using the optimized parameter and the following is my input files

when it finished , the log file come up with thounds of WARNING but still finished, and the WARNING most concentrate in the 'cgwf3.F90:702:WARNING' and the last of my log file it said 'The dynamical matrix was incomplete : phonon frequencies may be wrong ...' and 'matrix of third-order energies incomplete changes in the dielectric susceptibility may be wrong.' According to the Frecuently asked questions' ,mverstra said the dynamical matrix was incomplete owing to not all the purturbation was included, so i just neglected this warning and go ahead. after merging the add files i run anaddb it come up with the following.
(except for gamma, not yet able to use time-reversal symmetry)
Now the whole DDB is in central memory

and no output at al, i have no idea what should do next to fix these problem,please help me. Thanks in advanced

Hi Xiaole
i have the same problem for calculate NLO of TiO2, have you solved this problem?

Hi
I know this post is not new, but have anybody solved the problem? I have the same problem with abinit 8.6.3

Regards

In non-linear calculation, the nband should be equal to the number of valence band. I want to know how to confirm the value?

Hello

A first problem is rfatpol in dtset 4. It needs to be "1 natom" to be sure all of the needed perturbations are done. Those are the blocks missing from the dynamical matrix (at gamma only here) and so the Raman coefficients and born effective charges are incomplete. Please do all of the simpler tutorials (rf 1 & 2) before embarking on the others.

Please forget iscf 5 ever existed - the new default (7 or 17) is much better and the tutorials will be updated if that's not already done.
