Code: Select all
pspatm: WARNING -
Pseudopotential file pspxc= 7,
not equal to input ixc= 1.
These parameters must agree to get the same xc
in ABINIT code as in psp construction.
Action : check psp design or input file.
Assume experienced user. Execution will continue.
This is usually dangerous, as you are making uncontrollable errors in compensating for the Vxc of the core in the pseudopotential with a different functional.
However, there is an important exception: all the LDA functionals (ixc 1-7) are basically identical, but with different functional forms to fit the same data. As a result, mixing these ixc is mostly harmless (as above). The warning appears often, as the many pseudopotentials on the web site are created with a variety of ixc, not necessarily the default value 1.
