Dear LAMMPS users,

I could successfully run my code in my own computer however, when I  tried to run it on HPC  it was aborted with the error: "Unknown pair style eam/alloy (../force.cpp:246)". I have copied the log file at the end of this email.
The lammps installed in hpc has ANYBODY and OPT packages installed. What confuses me is that  I tried to run a simpler code on HPC ( increasing the temperature of atoms to 1000K), it was done successfully, and didn't give any errors for pair_style eam/alloy.

I appreciate to have your comments.

​perhaps, those were different executables. you can see which pair styles are included, when running LAMMPS with the -help flag.

also, watch out for cut-n-paste from web browsers or PDF viewers. those may replace ASCII characters with similar looking non-ASCII​ (usually UTF-8) characters. LAMMPS only accepts ASCII text, so what looks like a blank, may not be the ASCII blank or a '/' may not be the ASCII '/'.
