Configuration problems with Abinit 8.10.2

Postby JimEvans » Sun Feb 03, 2019 4:14 am

Hello everyone,

I'm having problems with the configuration step that I cannot work out. Here is my .ac file:
Code: Select all
prefix="/usr/local"
with_trio_flavor="netcdf"
with_netcdf_incs="-I/usr/lib/netcdf/include"
with_netcdf_libs="-L/usr/lib/netcdf/lib -lnetcdff -lnetcdf"
with_fft_flavor="fftw3"
with_fft_incs="-I/usr/include"
with_fft_libs="-L/usr/lib/x86-64-linux-gnu -lfftw3 -lfftw3f"
with_linalg_flavor="atlas"
with_linalg_inc="-I/usr/include"
with_linalg_libs="-L/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu -llapack -lf77blas -lcblas -latlas"
with_dft_flavor="atompaw+bigdft+libxc+wannier90"
with_atompaw_bins="/usr/local/bin"
with_atompaw_incs="-I/usr/local/include"
with_atompaw_libs="-L/usr/local/lib"
with_bigdft_incs="-I/usr/local/include"
with_bigdft_libs="-L/usr/local/lib -lbigdft -lPSolver-1 -labinit"
with_libxc_incs="-I/usr/lib/libxc/include"
with_libxc_libs="-L/usr/lib/libxc/lib -lxc"
with_wannier90_bins="-L/usr/local/bin"
with_wannier90_libs="-L/usr/local/lib -lwannier"


I am a newbie to compiling and installing large packages in Linux. I've checked and all the libraries, binaries, and includes seem to be in the right place. However, when I run configure, it stops at
Code: Select all
checking whether NetCDF Fortran wrappers work... no

with the error
Code: Select all
configure: error: external netcdf support does not work


If I set with_trio_flavor="none", the configuration then will proceed until it hits the libxc step, then stops at
Code: Select all
checking whether LibXC has Fortran support... no

with the error message
Code: Select all
configure: WARNING: package: libxc - preq= - working=no - incs=-I/usr/lib/libxc/include libs=-L/usr/lib/libxc/lib -lxc
configure: error: external libxc support does not work


I suspect that somehow the process is not finding the libraries properly, and I don't know why.
I am using Lubuntu 18.10 on an x86 64-bit laptop.

Thanks!

Hi,

we need more infos

- what is the fortran compiler ? GNU 8.2 ?
- MPI or serial ? if MPI, missing "with_mpi_prefix" if location is not standard
- something missing in : with_atompaw_libs="-L/usr/local/lib" -latompaw
- what are the outputs of these commands :
Code: Select all
dpkg -l | grep netcdf
dpkg -l | grep atlas
dpkg -l | grep -i libxc
ls -al /usr/lib/libxc/libx*


A+

well, very strange installation... Lubuntu seems very different that ubuntu

some packages seems installed in /usr/lib/PAKAGE like libxc, netcdf
others installed in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu

have you controled yours paths ?

for ex, outputs of
Code: Select all
ls -al /usr/lib/netcdf
ls -al /usr/lib/libxc

Hi,

Here is /usr/lib/netcdf:
Code: Select all
drwxr-xr-x   6 root root 4096 Jan 31 17:23 .
drwxr-xr-x 110 root root 4096 Jan 31 17:13 ..
drwxr-xr-x   2 root root 4096 Jan 31 17:39 bin
drwxr-xr-x   2 root root 4096 Jan 31 17:39 include
drwxr-xr-x   3 root root 4096 Jan 31 17:39 lib
drwxr-xr-x   5 root root 4096 Jan 31 17:23 share


and here is /usr/lib/libxc:
Code: Select all
drwxr-xr-x   5 root root 4096 Jan 30 18:37 .
drwxr-xr-x 110 root root 4096 Jan 31 17:13 ..
drwxr-xr-x   2 root root 4096 Jan 31 13:20 bin
drwxr-xr-x   2 root root 4096 Jan 31 13:20 include
drwxr-xr-x   3 root root 4096 Jan 31 13:20 lib


I'm not sure what you mean about controlling my paths.

Cheers,

Jim

ok ! PATHs seems to exist...
I do not understand why the netcdf is badly detected...

can you try with this config ? ( I added -lxcf90 and -latompaw )

Code: Select all
prefix="/usr/local"
with_trio_flavor="netcdf"
with_netcdf_incs="-I/usr/lib/netcdf/include"
with_netcdf_libs="-L/usr/lib/netcdf/lib -lnetcdff -lnetcdf"
with_fft_flavor="fftw3"
with_fft_incs="-I/usr/include"
with_fft_libs="-L/usr/lib/x86-64-linux-gnu -lfftw3 -lfftw3f"
with_linalg_flavor="atlas"
with_linalg_inc="-I/usr/include"
with_linalg_libs="-L/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu -llapack -lf77blas -lcblas -latlas"
with_dft_flavor="atompaw+bigdft+libxc+wannier90"
with_atompaw_bins="/usr/local/bin"
with_atompaw_incs="-I/usr/local/include"
with_atompaw_libs="-L/usr/local/lib -latompaw"
with_bigdft_incs="-I/usr/local/include"
with_bigdft_libs="-L/usr/local/lib -lbigdft -lPSolver-1 -labinit"
with_libxc_incs="-I/usr/lib/libxc/include"
with_libxc_libs="-L/usr/lib/libxc/lib -lxcf90 -lxc"
with_wannier90_bins="-L/usr/local/bin"
with_wannier90_libs="-L/usr/local/lib -lwannier"


and send me the config.log

Hi,

Clearly, there is a problem with your netcdf installation...

collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status


it seems that curl lib is missing !
in my installation , there are these two libs :
Code: Select all
ii  libcurl3-gnutls:amd64                      7.58.0-2ubuntu3.6                            amd64        easy-to-use client-side URL transfer library (GnuTLS flavour)
ii  libcurl4-gnutls-dev:amd64                  7.58.0-2ubuntu3.6                            amd64        development files and documentation for libcurl (GnuTLS flavour)


then, I think you must install these two librairies...

but what disturbs me, is the presence of the folder "/usr/lib/netcdf" !
I think there is perhaps a conflict between the installed ubuntu libraries ( libnetcdf-dev and libnetcdf13 ) and the installation in the folder "/usr/lib/netcdf" which is not standard.

Finally, if you try to use the installed ubuntu libraries, the fortran components of netcdf are missing :
Code: Select all
ii  libnetcdff-dev                             4.4.4+ds-3                                   amd64        creation, access, and sharing of scientific data in Fortran
ii  libnetcdff6                                4.4.4+ds-3                                   amd64        Fortran interface for scientific data access to large binary data


Code: Select all
apt install libnetcdff-dev libnetcdff6   


After the installation of the fortran components, can you retry with this netcdf configuration :

Code: Select all
with_trio_flavor="netcdf"
with_netcdf_incs="-I/usr/include"
with_netcdf_libs="-L/usr/lib -lnetcdff -lnetcdf"

Re: Configuration problems with Abinit 8.10.2

Postby JimEvans » Sun Feb 17, 2019 3:24 am

This seems to do the trick with netcdf.

So I spent the last week recompiling the libxc, bigdft, etc libraries and making sure everything was in /usr/local. However the configure script is still choking on libxc.

Code: Select all
checking whether to select a fallback for libxc... no
checking xc.h usability... yes
checking xc.h presence... yes
checking for xc.h... yes
checking xc_funcs.h usability... yes
checking xc_funcs.h presence... yes
checking for xc_funcs.h... yes
checking for Fortran module includes... none required (cached)
checking whether LibXC has Fortran support... yes
checking whether this is LibXC version 2.2->4.2... no
configure: WARNING: package: libxc - preq= - working=no - incs=-I/usr/local/include libs=-L/usr/local/lib -lxcf90 -lxc -lxcf03


Could this be because I am trying to use libxc-4.3.0 instead of 4.2? Config and log files below:
Code: Select all
prefix="/usr/local"
with_trio_flavor="netcdf"
with_netcdf_incs="-I/usr/include"

I am inexperienced installing things in a Linux/Unix environment. I feel like I'm missing something fundamental in making these libraries...

My problem with libxc WAS that I was using 4.3.0 instead of 4.2.*. I am still not having any luck with bigDFT and wannier90, but I don't think I need those yet. If I do, I will be back :D

Thanks for your help!
