Installation Error with VASP 6.4 in Ubuntu 18.04 'ifort: command not found'

#1 Post by vincent_mathew » Sun Jul 07, 2024 10:16 am

We are facing an issue with VASP 6.4.0 installation in UBUNTU 18.04 system. Intel compiler is used.
The error appearing is:

" line 711: ifort: command not found
makefile:167: recipe for target 'ml_ff_abinitio.o' failed "

The complete error log is given as:

Dear Vincent,

We have a comprehensive guide on how to install VASP in Ubuntu here.
This error means that there is no ifort command found in your environment.

Thank you for the reply.
We have followed the same instructions. But there is no instructions available for VASP installation in UBUNTU 18.04. We are a bit confused that whether VASP 6.4 is compatabile with UBUNTU 18.04 or not.

We also tried the fortran compiler (makefile.include.gnu_omp) and followed the vaspwiki instructions for ubuntu 20.0.
Then the following error appears:

What version of GCC are you using? I found the by default Ubuntu 18.04 comes with GCC 7, which is probably too old. We recommend GCC 12 for VASP 6.4.3. See the list of recommended toolchains here. The error seems to be related to OpenMP directives, I would suggest that you try to compile VASP without OMP first and see if that works.

Thank you for your suggestion. We successfully built VASP without OpenMP and were able to run calculations without parallelization. We used a modified version of makefile.include.gnu. Our GCC version is 7.5, and the versions of other tools differ from those specified in the tool chain. We hope this will not affect future calculations.
