Other Software Guidelines


On Westmere nodes which refer to cn01 to cn64. Login node: hornet.engr.uconn.edu or hronet-login1.engr.uconn.edu

$ module load gcc/4.7.1

on Sandy Bridge nodes which refer to cn65 to cn104. Login node: hornet-login1.engr.uconn.edu

$ module load gcc/4.8.2


$ module load intelics/2012.0.032 zlib/1.2.3-ics hdf5/1.8.9-ics netcdf/4.2-ics geos-chem/v9-02


$ module load intelics/2013.1.039-compiler libjpeg-turbo libpng zlib/1.2.8-ics motif grace/5.1.23


$ module load gaussian/g09d01


$ module load igraph/0.6.5


$ module load lammps/23Sep13


$ module load motif/2.3.4


$module load rline/1.2

Then run:


Trouble Shooting

Module Conflict

If the 'module load' command returns the following errors:

$ module load <Module1>
<Module1>(4):ERROR:150: Module '<Module1>' conflicts with the currently loaded module(s) '<Module2>'
<Module1>(4):ERROR:102: Tcl command execution failed: conflict <Module_Group>

This means that the module you want to load conflicts with the currently loaded module, <Module2>. To fix it, please unload <Module2> and then load <Module1> again:

$ module unload <Module2>
$ module load <Module1>


$ module switch <Module2> <Module1>

Module Prereq

If the 'module load' command returns the following errors:

$ module load <Module1>
<Module1>(9):ERROR:151: Module '<Module1>' depends on one of the module(s) '<Module2>'
<Module1>(9):ERROR:102: Tcl command execution failed: prereq <Modle2>

This means that the module you want to load depends on the module <Module2>. To fix it, please load <Module2> prior to <Module1>:

$ module load <Module2> <Module1>

You may encounter the above errors many times. Please load/unload the requested/conflicted modules and try again.

Intel SDK and MPIs

If you got the following errors while using both Intel SDK and one of the mpi modules:

/apps/intelics/2013.1.039/composer_xe_2013_sp1.0.080/mpirt/bin/intel64/mpirun: line 96: 
/apps/intelics/2013.1.039/composer_xe_2013_sp1.0.080/mpirt/bin/intel64/mpivars.sh: No such file or directory

please unload the intelics and mpi modules and reload them in the order. Make sure that the intelics module is prior to the mpi module. For example,

$ module list
1) modules                                      3) intelics/<version>
2) mpi/<software>/<version>
$ module unload intelics mpi
$ module load intelics/<version> mpi/<software>/<version>
$ module list
1) modules                                      3) mpi/<software>/<version>
2) intelics/<version>
