Failing make check

Post by wcardoen » Tue Aug 06, 2019 9:16 pm


I compiled abinit 8.10.3 successfully using the following command:
../../../srcdir/abinit/8.10.3/configure --prefix=/uufs/ \
--enable-gpu --enable-mpi \
--enable-openmp --enable-stdin --enable-xml CPP="gcc -E" CXXCPP="g++ -E" \
--with-gpu-prefix=/uufs/ --with-linalg-flavor="netlib+magma" \
--with-fft-flavor=fftw3-mkl --with-fft-libs="-lmkl_intel_ilp64 -lmkl_intel_thread -lmkl_core "
make - j 24
make install

When I invoke make check I get the following type of error:
make check-local
make[3]: Entering directory `/uufs/'
[ -f "" ] && ./ fast -o1 --no-colors --no-logo || ../../../../srcdir/abinit/8.10.3/tests/ fast -o1 --no-colors --no-logo --with-pickle=0

No YAML Error found in [fast][t00][np=1]

From the error message I infer that the code crashes because It can't read a file.
Any suggestions?

Dear Wim,
And if you go in the test folder and run the python script yourself, does it works (./ ; please look at the different options by typing ./ -h)
Best wishes,
