Questions on Quantum Espresso

  1. Feb 13, 2013 #1

    I'm new to Computational physics. I was trying to install Quantum Espresso under Cygwin on a PC. Running the Makefile resulted in two error messages, which I don't understand:

    $ make all
    test -d bin || mkdir bin
    cd install ; make -f extlibs_makefile libiotk
    make[1]: Entering directory `/cygdrive/d/espresso-5.0.2/install'
    if test ! -d ../S3DE; then \
    (gzip -dc ../archive/iotk-1.2.beta.tar.gz | (cd ../; tar -xvf -)) ; \
    if test -e Makefile_iotk; then \
    (cp Makefile_iotk ../S3DE/iotk/src/Makefile); fi; \
    if test -e iotk_config.h; then \
    (cp iotk_config.h ../S3DE/iotk/include/iotk_config.h); fi; fi
    cd ../S3DE/iotk/src; make lib+util;
    make[2]: Entering directory `/cygdrive/d/espresso-5.0.2/S3DE/iotk/src'
    make loclib_only

    Anyone can help? Thank you very much!

    Have you tried googling for these message? First two hits suggests you are missing some libraries.

    It can be some deeper problem, but in my experience whenever there are problems during execution of make googling for error messages points in the right direction.
