I'm trying to build the latest version of lammps (11Aug17) on our Cray XC-40 with 'make mpi'
Make mpi seems to depend on something called 'quip' which hasn't been an issue before, before delving into that particular issue... I was wondering if anyone had any lammps compile recipes for an XC40 or anything in the same family of supercomputer.  Thank you for your help.


​you are mi​xing up two things here: one is the selection of (optional) packages that can be included in a LAMMPS compile, some of which have dependencies on external software packages (e.g. QUIP, VORONOI, MSCG, KIM) , and the other is the specific machine configuration. the former is done with "make yes-<packagename>" or "make no-<packagename>", the latter is done by selecting one of the machine targets like "mpi".

if you do "make clean-all; make no-lib; make mpi", you should be able to get a "reduced" LAMMPS executable, which should work with the in.lj file in the bench folder. then you can add packages and go over the list of what would be desirable and what not. for a couple of packages, there are conflicts, i.e. they cannot be included and work properly at the same time.

details are in the LAMMPS manual under:
