Error when compiling abinit-9.4.0 fallbacks

Post by bp432 » Thu Mar 11, 2021 2:00 am

Dear developers,

I got an error message when compiling abinit-9.4.0 fallbacks, and it told me to "contact Abinit's team" (see below). Do you have any ideas what is wrong? Thanks in advance!

there is obviously a problem with the generation of the XMLF90 v1.5.3.1 fallback doc
Neither of the two necessary software ( Latex and doxygen ) was installed on our testfarm builders :?
They could not have reported this bug... :?

in the XMLF90 v1.5.4.0 version, the doc is no longer generated by default... ;)

I will generate a new tarball soon.

in the meantime, if you don't need this lib, you can add in the script "fallbacks/",
these 2 lines :
--disable-atompaw \
--disable-wannier90 \
--disable-xmlf90 \
--disabled-libpsml \

LIBS_NETCDF4_FORTRAN="-ldl -lm -lz" \
and restart the build :

Code: Select all

rm -rf abinit-fallbacks-9.2
